My daughter just spent a year in Oz and we were shocked by how poor the Net access and telephone service was - very expensive and poor service/availability for both.

We all assumed that Oz would have facilities like all the other advanced countries but not so.

Apparently telecom services there are a government operation so......

She was on the east coast as well - Melbourne, Sydney etc.
