    ha ha to all those who churned to Tel$tra so fast.

    No contract...Churn anytime i want...awww yeah xD

    Question is, out of the ADSL2 speeds available, how fast will it actually be with everyone leeching....

    Shazam. Shit just got real. Looks like I may be going back to TPG instead of Telstra.

    Thats what i think as well.

    My Rollover date is the 20th, ill need to think fast if i want to change lol.

    Currently paying $129/m for 80gb, so this would be handy to keep costs down, but i dont want to be on a network that could only maybe deliver ~300kb/s or so.

    I think TPG has the most international capacity out of all the providers in the country ;)


    They're certainly in a better position to try than anyone else.

    I saw this and thought great, need to move my parents to an ISP with competitive prices and a tech service that actually speaks english. Googled "TPG Customer Service" yea no...... from what I read they dont have any real customer service, i dont call a call center in the phillipines with broken english customer service.

    What do you expect for unlimited on Telstra Wholesale ADSL2+ ports for $79.99?

    Perhaps your parents aren't as xenophobic as you.

    I went to the website because generally if a company can offer unlimited ADSL2+ for $80, they can have some good plans for more around the $50 mark. And its not xenophobia, its just that when there is 50 bad reviews about TPGs customer service saying how the people can barely speak english, are incredibly difficult to understand and hardly helpful then they wouldnt really be improving over their current provider in terms of tech support would they? The person they have now is also from the phillipines and they can barely understand her to get help when their net has an issue. Has nothing to do with xenophobia, if it did I would afraid of half the people I know.

    Just to make it clear, I have nothing against people from the philipines, I have friends from there, but when you ring an australian company trying to get help with your service that is in australia, it would be nice if it was possible to understand the person, let alone them be in the same country.

    TPG's network is rubbish, but oh my god 99999999999gb for 5c per month, who cares if all my data goes via america and about 10 third world countries to get to its destination!

    If you dont play games, never need their tech support and don't mind the connection dropping out every now and then, I'm sure you will like TPG. I'm sure as hell not going back..

    I regularly play on singapore server (internode) and ping 50 to them. All my friends with TPG find it unplayable at around 480ms - the routing is just terrible to most places except america and japan. Stay away from them if you like your games!

    The PIPE Networks acquisition has had a large positive effect for the TPG network.
