Which Internet provider???

I have only access to the Internet at work at the moment and am interested at getting it at home. It will be only a modem connection and will be used only a little (well at least at first) as I work from home at nights as well as my job during the days.
Was wondering what people use and why?
Like I said before I am not interested in huge downloads and the like. I just want a reliable service. Suggestions please!!

I'm with bigpond steve. It's going up to 28.95 p/month which is unlimited time but with a 300mb download limit. I've found them to be really good. Never had a major drama with them. Can always get on when I want and the speed is ok for dial up.

I am in the process of ditching my current provider (blue sky internet) cos they changed their plans to not offer unlimited downloads (try staying under 300mb a month when you have 3 PC's sharing a net connection), and a few other technical problems with their network and double billing. Changing to Iprimus for both at home and the house I live in when at uni cos telstra upped the price of adsl too much :dead:

I've been with Crystal, Bigpond and Dingoblue. Dingoblue (whom I'm with now) have been best in terms of cost, speed and reliability. I'm a very heavy user though.

I'm using Ihug at the moment. Its got no download limits and its unlimited access. $99 for 4 months, 5 e-mail addresses & 10 mb webspace. Its not as fast as bigpond but its good enough for me.

Can you dial into your work LAN using RAS? That's what I do! :s6: Only downside is you have to be careful what sites you visit...

Ozemail - sponsors of BJR Falcon V8Supercar.


That's enough of a reason for me. I have also been with bigpond and found ozemail to be more reliable (ie it has never (or almost never) dropped out whereas with bigpond this occurs frequently). Otherwise much the same.
