$90 for downloading 4mb over GPRS back in the day.
Ignoring initial setup costs, prolly around $130 for a month with Internode.
My gf and I both decided to go on a leech fest, and within a couple of days, we'd hit the quota - so I went and bought some more data blocks.
then I found more stuff we both were interested in, so we burnt thru those blocks.
and it happened again
I had a 3.5k bill from telstra years ago.. Dam ex-wife watching Big Brother live feeds 6 hrs a day while I was at work...
Sounds like you did the right thing.
It's so easy to rack up excess downloads. Especially for those not computer literate. "But I didn't download anything, just spent 8hrs a day on youtube".
As for the OPs question, $149.99/pm business unlimited plan FTW.
Link to plan?
$2400 on my HTC Hero on Optus Business 3G for work... Optus told us the rate was 0.0055c/kB but charged us $0.0055/kB so yeah, 100x more than they quoted us.
I refused to pay it and the pathetic, spineless, lazy as all fuck IT department bent over and took it from Optus and just charged it to overhead and cancelled 3G on my phone, despite having an email from an Optus rep stating clearly 0.0055c/kB (or $55/GB).
Note it's only ADSL1, but that's all I can get here....
$95 for unlimited 1.5 ADSL, on WildIT up till they went bust and I moved over to TPG not long after that
i'd never get a plan which costs per mb if you go over.... too risky
I don't, I get shaped with BPC
That is a lame excuse ad who the hell still uses Firefox?
I notice all the big bills eem to come from Telstra
I never signed with telstra with internet (good choice by me)
and went to optus with the phone over a decade ago LOL
currently all bundled with Exetel, on 30g and 60g off peak
I use firefox
A client once got a billing for a 3G service totalling $28k.
They had something like a 5G cap and they downloaded 60+ GB. Wasn't my problem so I found it pretty funny.
Still paying around the $100 mark, but now at 100Gig for that money so much much better value for money with BP
Does corporate account count? I've seen a couple of mils
Nope, just personal accounts please : p
$60 shaped with TPG and currently i'm shaped got decent speed for online stream, voice video chat on skype.
call bigpond and tell them it was just a once off and will never happen again, done this with a few clients and they let you off the hook
the OP was several months ago.... I sure he has it sorted out now...
it is real shame telstra let people off the hook it is only hurting the company.. and letting people think they can just do that every time....
For massive excess usage charge one month (not even my fault, due to the new billing system) I had to fill in forms, including letter stating my case....all to get off the large charge.
yeah like a few $k some dipshit at the Telstra shop managed to NOT setup data on my new 3G sim properly so was charged heeeeeaps - couple of calls to ombudsman and fixed!
