Options to Banking with the Majors..especially Westpac

Since I feel strongly about more competition in the Australian banking sector...the following article offers some Alternatives.


The ATM network reach is as follows:

1. CBA 4000
2. NAB/CUSCAL 3100
3. Westpac/St George/Bank SA 2800
4. ANZ 2500
5. Bendigo-Adelaide/Suncorp-Metway 1600 (expected to be able use by March 2010

I note that credit unions like CUA are good options as you have no fees and can use the NAB ATM network for free.

Bendigo-Adelaide/Suncorp-Metway will also and alternative to majors.

Can be a bit inconvenient but the above maybe options....
