Fixed-line vs mobile voice servicesFixed-line telephone services have continued to decrease in popularity across the nation. Many households are opting to rely solely on their mobile device for making and receiving calls. The flexibility and relatively low cost of mobile plans have likely driven this trend. In terms of mobile service providers in Australia, Telstra leads the retail market with Optus and Vodafone trailing behind.

With faster and more reliable 5G technology being implemented in Australia, mobile internet has started to gain momentum as competition to the country’s recently upgraded broadband network.
