This note is to keep you up to date with the status of your Bliink application.

We have a tentative date for your ADSL line upgrade or conversion of 02/02/2004, however please note this is an indicative date only, and the actual timing may be before or after this date. We will email you when we receive advice of completion of your line upgrade.

Oh good stuff mate. U will notice a huge difference in connection speed. And when you happen to use a computer with dial-up after you have used broadband, you will appreciate it even more.

You'll never go back :) Trust me!

What speed are you getting? I'm on the 512/128 with Swiftdsl and it's always good. Too bad the rest of the world doesn't have broadband...

Nice mate, I knew it was in the pipeworks. Im with IInet had a little drama with them at first but everthing has been fine sailing ever since. I guess we will see some faster slapping in IRC and now im sure your Cd Burner will get some good use. :wnc: Oh and isnt Pron just great now :angel:

im on a relativly slow ADSL connect (256) but i still love it i can download shit so fast on my old computer the computer lagged the webpages so they couldnt load that much faster but it downloaded quick as but my brand spanking new computer should fly in everyway and all directions, i really like the speed it downloads stuff off kazaa and stuff,

btw does anyone know where you can still download Kazaa lite? or know if Morpheus is anygood

cheers

just got 256k adsl myself last week...was originally told told 5-7 days. hahaha try 15 days before i actually got it. i got the billion bipac5100 modem....pretty good for $120.
as far as kazzalite goes you cant download it any more. you need to find someone with it and do a file transfer as i did...still took about 10 mins with adsl.
whats everyone paying? im paying $50 a month with 500mb or $54 a month for 512k if i want it. 1 gig for 256 is $60 a month i think?

$65 for 16 gb (512/128). Downloading from Kazaa is slow as shite anyway, as most people are still part of DUAG.

congrats on the upgrade :)
I too am on the iinet 512/128 plan and love it :)
yeah billion is damn good modems for half the price of others. I have the older 711ce and have no problems with it (except the 21 open port limit). Goodluck with it all :)

Your whole move to something greater than DUAG has made me consider the benefits myself!

Hope you enjoy it Steve, hope your girlfriend understands also :wnc: haha!
