I think in my mind i view the internet cost as an essential tool of running an online business so 100% would be reasonable, but i get the ATO may see it differently.

The opposing argument would be that for most people the internet is also an essential expense for personal life. So if you would be paying for it with or without a business, then any tax break is a bonus, and meeting them somewhere in between would usually satisfy both sides. :)
