I moved into my new home in August of last year and inquired wiht Telstra to have Broadband installed.
At that point in time they informed me that the current exchange was not equipped to supply the service.
I called back a second time about three months latter to see if it was available and was told the same thing again. They took my details and said once this service was up (early 2003)and running that they would phone me.
So i decided to call againd this afternoon. After inquiring again the lady put me on hold to check if ther had been any progress.
Once she returned promtly said that my particular address will *never* be able to have access to Broadband internet services and that i will only be able to have dial up service.
I was amazed what i was hearing. I said"i am only 16km from the city" she replied "it makes no difference where you are located in relation to the city".
Someone please tell me this is NOT TRUE!! I moved in 10klms closer to the city expecting to able to access this service.
I can't survive on dial up. It is costing me a fortune in dial up calls.
Last month there were 90 dial up calls alone.
