In December, Telstra began a trial in Victoria for its T-Box set-top box, which aims to bring its BigPond internet TV channels to homes around the country.

Telstra’s head of voice, broadband and media Justin Milne says while it is “early days” for the T-Box, “it already seems to be a well-loved device by the people who are using it”.

Telstra’s promise to buyers of the T-Box is that content will be unmetered and packaged with a broadband subscription, effectively providing seven to eight new TV channels and movie downloads at little extra cost.

But according to some analysts, if Australia goes the way of other international markets, broadband fees are likely to fall, and people will begin signing up to ISPs based on the content they offer.
