Is Telstra Australia's best mobile carrier?

Telstra comfortably ahead of VHA in our online poll

Is Telstra's Australia's best mobile carrier? According to GoodGearGuide's readers it is, winning 38 per cent of the votes in our latest online poll.

We asked our readers "What company do you consider to be the best Australian mobile carrier?" and ran the poll for two weeks in our mobile phone section.

Telstra was a clear winner ahead of rivals Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) and Optus, which polled 23 per cent and 16 per cent respectively.

Richard Branson's Optus subsidiary Virgin Mobile racked up 15 per cent of the vote to sit in fourth place, while a further five per cent voted 'other'.

The range of quality smartphones on offer from Telstra — the iPhone 4, HTC Desire and HTC Wildfire are all sold by the telco — could be one factor. Its Next G network also has a well-deserved reputation for good speed and coverage.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
