Their base plans have a 5MB limit?

Do Telstra realise that it's not the 1990s anymore? It's called 3G for a
reason you know to encourage you to browse and download.

What's worse is even at the highest dataplan of 3gb a month you are
paying $125 for data (or $40 a gb) - NO Unlimited Plans!!!

Telstra should be nationalized by the Australian government and turned
into a national asset - the excused used can be that at these pricing

I wonder if governments globally are wondering if it really was such a
smart idea to sell off their national carriers in the 80's and 90's -
Does anyone know which countries have retained control and keep prices
low enough to stimulate the economy?
