Forget Netflix, regional Australians say they struggle to get enough internet data to do their jobs and homework.


Netflix and chill isn't always an option in regional Australia


Vote Compass has revealed that almost 70 per cent of Australians want a faster National Broadband Network, even if that costs the Government more money.


But for many people in rural and remote areas, data restrictions are an even bigger problem.


While people in the capital cities can access unlimited data for just $60 per month, some regional Australians are paying around $100 per month for just 15 gigabytes.


The University of Canberra's regional wellbeing report found that almost half of Australians living outside the major cities rated their internet as "very poor".


Associate Professor Jacki Schirmer said poor internet coverage was preventing farmers from adopting the latest technology to improve their efficiencies, and also reduced the capacity to improve rural and remote Australians' access to health services through e-health.


We asked Twitter users to tell us where they are, how much monthly data they get, and how much they pay for it.


The results showed a clear difference between rural and urban Australians, not only in the speed, but the quantity of internet they get access to.
