Telstra's now 8Mbps or 20Mbps

Telstra's has announced that it had dramatically dialed up the bandwidth on its ADSL broadband service. Millions of Australians now have access to broadband speeds of up to 8Mbps or 20Mbps, where they were previously artificially limited to 1.5Mbps. The up to 8Mbps speeds will now be resold to other Internet service providers which will increase the speeds all around. This is great news for all Australians as the price of bandwidth will now be reduced not only by Telstra but other ISP's around the country. This announcement is a little late on my behalf as this happened a couple of weeks ago, but better late than never.
