The NFF CEO, Tony Mahar, said: 'When the data limit increase was announced, we were delighted. This is a huge step forward.' Internet user Ali Briggs from Condamine in Queensland said:

The data increase is a game-changer for us … I will be able to continue to work remotely from home; our children will be able to access online homework tasks; we can read cattle market reports, online news; do online banking …
