Re: which DSL connection?

DUAG :)

I would flog optus but its not 100% released to the market yet hehe

I would go cable personally if you can get it $70 a month for unlimited uncapped ( unless over 10gb ) even tho it is with telstra

Cheers

I'm with Netspace DSL http://home.netspace.net.au/broadband/ I'm on the equivalent of the "Supa 512" $69.95. I only use a few 100MB a month but work pays for it ;-)

Now that i'm set up its great. Not an issue.

Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Re: which DSL connection?

Is everyone with netspace here? I'm with them too, the 512kb 30gig download one (then its shaped). Its $99 a month - but work pays for it too :)

Also - they have a competition at the moment to get free tickets to the grand prix and a lap in a v8 supercar and stuff... lots more... really cool prizes check out http://grandprix.netspace.net.au/

Re: which DSL connection?

Be sure to check out Pacific Internet too.... I have been with them for years and been using their DSL for 6 months to good affect. Never ever not been able to connect on either dial-up or DSL. Brilliant!

Re: which DSL connection?

Big difference between Helstra and Optus, and the real provides is that Hel$tra and Optus demand 18 month contacts, and want to charge $130gb for excess data, where as most other ISPs are 3 months then month by month, and Swiftel are $5 per excess mb

check out www.whirlpool.net.au broadband choice section

Chevs may go, but theres nothing like a HO!
