Well with my discounts, just got my last bill....paying $55.56 for 200Gig cable per month, woot!
lol...just got my 3G wireless bill aswell..paying $119.95 for 10gig at dailup speeds woot!
Based on what? ADSL1 access?
Ouch! NBN for you then?
rofl....by the time NBN gets to me, it will be out of date and wireless speeds will be faster and more accessible.....this will all happen in roughly 10-15 years time though .
But hey...thats all $43 billion gets you these days hey...cant expect too much
I live 20 mins from melbourne cbd, yet I'm classified as broadband1, which means that i have to pay more than someone who lives 10 mins further out than me... i can't get adsl2+... its truly a joke!
I'm 5km or less from the CBD in Brisbane and also RIMm'd. Better than wireless though.
I wouldnt winge about being about on adsl1...i'd swap you any day of the week...better then the wireless crap i'm on.
I'm guessing you are out in the sticks somewhere.
Yep ...north central QLD
welcome to the wonderful world of being rimmed.
In this country your better of being on old hardware in an old house
Build a new house in a new estate your garenteed to be rimmed/CMUX with a good chance of not even getting adsl1 (and no NextG does not count as broadband )
New House, New Estate.. ADSL2+ on albeit a Telstra Plan. That said, I did wait for 5 months for the RIM to actually be installed.
I am happy. For $100 a month I have a phone I dont use, 200gb of Data ill never get through all at 20mbits/sec, with little to no peak slowdown.
Its good seeing 2.1mb/sec on the download instead of 15kb/sec on the 3g.
that is the case with a house built in the last 10 years, but in the last couple of years its no longer the case.
what has stopped the upgrade of our broadband to adsl2 is the government in-decision on this matter, why spend money when it could be knocked down in a year?
What else do you expect from cheap developers and their crummy estates usually in the middle of nowhere?
Decent developers will offer better solutions (and no, I don't just mean a Telstra Smart Community).
Exactly. It's getting beyond a joke...
I'm sorry i thought something completly different
We've also signed up for another 24 month contract, for 69.95 a month
Just made a deal with Telstra, $128.00 and that includes my home line with unlimited local and interstate calls, 100gb download, free mobile calls to Telstra mobile's. I think I done well.
Standard offer if you opt to not take a T-Box or T-Hub: http://www.telstra.com.au/bundle_save/home-bundles.html
I am on the same deal except the phone calls (don't make any) for $88.
Hilarious - even moreso that Simon Hackett continues to whinge and rebutt in the comments.
Am on the same boat.
20min out, house is 6months old, new estate and cant get adsl2.... Just 1.
Umm get ur info right, it has nothing to do with developer at all.
My mate works for telstra installing lines, and he told me how it works.
So many houses are going up the sytem wasnt designed for so many houses, So now the copper lines are getting split into 2 or more for more houses, hence PGS Pair Gain Systems, which am on atm so i cant get adsl2.
