saved me lots of money.
not sure how much charges i will have to pay for downgrading thohugh
This mobile plan is one of the best going round. All our family and friends are now on it..... Uses Optus but has much better service than them. OK Back on topic, I can't get TPG ADSL2 on the Sunshine Coast here .
$0 you downgrade
i hope so.
except i already downgraded already within 6 months (when they made it from 120gb to 150gb.)
and im not even sure if im in contract
You wont get charged if you downgrade/sidegrade. As long as you are paying the same amount or less.
I've changed, I'm like many in that I sync at about 5k which means that my real world speeds are only between 450-500kb/s on a good day. The way shaping is going I won't even need any quota soon, just a connection.
I'm sure it's different for many in decent areas, however there will be a lot of people like me out there that will soon have an effective unlimited plan. I will tell you one thing, with a shaping speed of half my maximum I don't think I'll ever worry about the cap again, it's not enough of a hit to make me notice and 200gb will get me a fair way through the month.
slightly OT but havnt been able to find when searching.. we got onto TPG last week, got a fairly decent line speed, just wondering if it would be worth putting on an adsl line filter, given that we dont have an actual phone connected to the line and dont plan on ever having one?
You only need low pass filters if you have any telephony devices on the line.
No phones/faxes/alarms/foxtel boxes etc - no filters needed.
anyone else tried bundling with the landline for $1 + the min monthly spend of $10...
It seems really really good...
Looking to update from my old ass Optus plan with 12/24gb bundled with landline with 3 mths free internet.
erk, if only going naked didn't mean going offline for 10-20 days! Yuck!!
Anyway just shifted from the old Super2 150 to the new 200 plan - should be good, love the 2/1 capping too that's absolutely brill.
Way to go TPG!
How are people on TPG finding pings to gaming servers? PS3 as well. Also, much congestion of the network at off peak times?
I find pings quite good, no comment on PS3 as I don't.
We're with 'Node at the moment, 40/40Gb for $89.95 a month or something. Highest speed i've seen from a node server is about 1200-1300kb/sec, which for only ~1k as the crow flies from the exchange didn't sound that great.
We're finding that in the last few days of the month we're running out of quota in peak. Node has a massive freezone going for it, as well as its own unmetered gaming servers, but TPG has massive data allowance for cheaper.
We could drop $40 a month to a 70/60 plan with 1mbs shaping and be a lot more content, but there is the worry of tpg with network congestion and having been with them before for ADSL a few years ago, the tech support was abysmal (PNG?).
I've switched from Optus cable to Telstra phone line and TPG ADSL2+. I've had it since Friday.
Speeds were abismal on Friday, 30KB/s.
After support fixed it this morning speeds are now 1.4MB/s.
With Optus the max for me was 1MB/s.
So if this speed remains I'll be as happy as a pig in mud.
yeah I am nowhere near the exchange and get a solid 13mbit.
mate of mine was on node and switched to TPG and gets better speeds and pings even to node servers - lol.
Never used support in my 2 years with TPG so can't comment on that side of things, but changing plans was painless and means no re-contracting either - i just logged in and changed plans, same pricing just 50GiB more data and higher capped speeds.
All win as far as I'm concerned.
Why oh why must they tease me with their awesome ADSL2+ Plans
Stupid Tel$tra not giving TPG access to ADSL2 ports
I tell you what, you send me some wine and i'll download things for you
what's crazy is even with all the advertising everywhere (buses, tv etc) when you say you are on TPG heaps of people still blank stare you like you mentioned some obscure provider.
Telstra Wholesale would be willing to sell TPG access to their ADSL2 ports: at a (high) price.
zomg they've already changed my plan over.
fucken TPG FTW!
