cyril7:I guess there are a few reasons why I put up with it. Firstly price. I did look in to MySky but because we have our phone and Internet with Telstra it's cheaper for us to have it all as a package and there was no way my husband would switch to Xtra broadband. Also on the price issue - when we signed up I got a free cellphone with free texts for 2 years and that has saved me a lot. And other than price I really don't want a Sky dish on my house and I don't want to deal with the rain fade issues.
Hi Christine, not wanting to take this far off topic just curious, I know TCL's HFC broadband is probably one of the best out their, but Xtra I dont believe is that far behind, having spent $1.4bn on their DSL network its come a long way such that I dont think the difference is as great as you think anymore.
And Rainfade, since moving to Optus D1 that has higher power output rain fade is now very rare, in my area pole fade of the TCL network has been worse than rain fade on Satellite.
anyway back on topic, I look forward to TCLs response to the recent posts, good one oldfart
That's interesting Cyril and I shall pass it on to my husband but he'll be hard to sway. Also I have to say the hassle of changing my Email address puts me off too. Changing cell phone numbers was bad enough - no matter how many times you tell people you've changed it you still get someone using the old number.
