Mobile Wireless Users Outstrip Fixed Internet Connections

Mobile wireless broadband connections are continuing to advance as Australia’s most popular means of accessing the ¬†Internet, new figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics show.

At June 30 the nation had 6.56 million mobile wireless Internet subscribers, compared with 3.6 million with fibre connections and 3.2 million connecting via DSL phone services.


There were 937,000 cable subscribers, 217,000 on fixed wireless, and 132,000 satellite-based subscribers, Stats estimates.


Total number of Internet subscribers at June 30 was 14.7 million, up 3.6pc since the end of December 2017. In the three months to June 30 they downloaded 3.8 million terabytes of data, up 28pc on the same period in 2017.


This week’s report is the last to come from the ABS. From December the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission will take over the counting.
