Live-updated NBN100 deals

While the speed tier that a service uses is indicative of the level of download and upload speeds that can be obtained (i.e. NBN100 should be up to 100Mbps), this will vary with actual usage. 

Thankfully, telcos are now required to advertise a "typical evening speed" to give you a better indication of what you'll be facing in reality. For NBN100, we're generally seeing "typical evening speeds" between 75-85Mbps.
