    Home phone/ Broadband deals

    Hey all,
    Just wondering if anyone can help me wade through the (seemingly) endless home phone and broadband deals available.
    I'm currentl with Virgin, the $60 bundle. Due to several problems I am allowed to brake the contract with no penalties, but I am soon going to be without internet, phone....
    Any ideas????

    I am probably on the laptop every day at some time or another. I don't download movies or music, I rarely stream (but only because the connection I currently have is not fast enough), I am here, emailing, researching or on facebook... that's kinda it.
    As for home phone, I use the mobile for most calls... just local calls really.
    My aim is this basic useage for cheape price, and no more hassles like I have had for the lat 9 mths!!!
    Cheers
    RIP Kenneth George and Liane Gai...............love you both so dearly....miss you immensely.

    I'm with Telstra $39.95 a month with dunno the upload and all of that but it's great with what I use it for, that's with using it to watch TV shows online, facebook and stuff which with Optus I heard it'd cost more.

    That's just my choice, I love Bigpond no problems and great price. Go to the websites of the ones your thinking of and check them out probably be the best IMO.

    I'm with Telstra on cable broadband $63 and i use an Engin phone which only costs $14.95 a month including all calls local and national.no line rental.
    My brother is also with telstra on ADSL2 unlimited he had half price for 6 months , then it went to $63 a month , but he got Engin and now his phone and Internet only costs him only $78 plus line rental $19-95, So now it costs him just under $100 as before he had a $89 cap plus the $63 =$152, so he saves at least $52 a month

    I've been with iinet for years now and have been very happy with their service and price. You might want to check out their deals to compare with any others you are considering.

    Yeah, I was with Ozemail for many years (iinet now) but when I needed to go to broadband, I was too far from the exchange (for all ADSL providers), so, I had to go cable. Optus doesn't do cable in my street, that left me with Tel$tra.

    Ill be moving house soon and leaving behind my rip off telstra broadband. For someone like me who downloads a lot telstra is CRAP! At the moment im paying $69 a month for a 12gb limit, this includes uploads. Which means when i dl torrents i really only get 6gb as i upload pretty much wat i download. There are ways around this such as capping uploads but this slows ur download speed to that of dial up and defeats the purpose of having broadband on most counts.
    I've found a plan with TPG that gives 36gb (18 onpeak+18 offpeak) per month for only $59. The best part is that uploads arent counted at all.

    I was with Telstra when there was no other broadband, 512 speed and 3gb download for $90 a month, thank god things have changed, nowadays I've got ADSL2+, 78gb of downloads, 100 Australia wide phone calls, no charge for uploads all for $60 a month and mine is a naked service (nothing to do with how I surf the internet) which means that there is no phone line rental either, all I pay is $60 all up, thankfully some things have progressed

    Yes where i live out in the sticks of SA, when broadband became popular telstra was my only option and since then i've just upped the limit as they've become available, it wasnt til i started to think about moving and looking into other services i realised how ripped off i was. Im hoping ill be able to get ADSL2 in Melbourne when i move.

    i am on adsl 1500/256 with 25 GB peak and 30 GB off peak with Netspace. Except that isn't available anymore. (The sequence went from a REAL no limit, then, when Netspace found they were being ruptured by the downloaders, they changed it from no limit to 1500/256. Now the 1500/256 has some small GB limit (relatively speaking) but those of us who were on the 25/30 (or is it 20/30 damn it) we have been "grandfathered" - shut up.

    Uploads are unlimited.

    You can have it bundled too. Hooray. On the mainland they have adsl 2 and naked dsl in places, NOT here, of course where we are confined to having a major optical fibre link that is and has not been used due to our government of weathered old farts not having a clue what they are supposed to do. i don't think that it helps when folks keep hanging their laundry on the phone line.

    Telstra had a special on steam-powered telephones the other week but we thought they were too new-fangled

    once you work out where you will be you might find this site useful, you can do number lookups and it will tell you if the exchange is ADSL2 enabled and which companies have service there http://adsl2exchanges.com.au/

    is a good site to check, a very good site especially once you work out that the main writers to each isp forum are the unhappy ones, the happy keep quiet and keep using - just vet what you read.

    Who is your ISP, if I may ask?
    Sarcasm helps to keep me from telling people what I really think of them.

    Internode's offices are in SA. They offer a naked DSL service and don't count uploads.

    They're one of the highest rated ISP's in terms of customer satisfaction.

    both my sister and a mate are with internode, they live suburban melb cbd (no issue with being far away from connections etc) and both are constantly experiencing random drop outs of net. Internode also dont have as good plans by was of dl for $$. I dont want naked DSL as the majority of my phone calls from the home phone will be international and i believe getting a specific international phone plan is still the cheapest way to go. If anyone can point me toward a way of saving money i will gladly take it on board. Im yet to do ALL the necessary research into the international plan side so any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Which countries do you need to call and what do you currently pay, also are you calling landlines or mobiles in these countries?
