Most of our Airports have free internet and there are numerous access points in McDonalds.

Internet here is just moving to ADSL2+ in some areas but you can expect to pay $50AUD for a 512kb/128kb ADSL connection with 20GB of downloads.

There is a company called 3 that sells a PCMCIA card that uses the mobile phone network. Its pretty pricey though.

There are plenty of internet cafes though.

If you've got decent cashflow once you get there, you can get a 3G card from Vodafone that'll give you broadband speeds in a little PC card you plug into your laptop.. from anywhere there's a Vodafone signal! A couple of my mates there have it and use it as their only internet connection... pretty handy! I forgot exactly how much it costs..

here we go.. it's called Vodafone Mobile Connect. They have similar services in other countries with 3G and/or EDGE networks. Can't wait for T-Mobile to start offering it in the US, as they do in central Europe!
