So I have an internet connection at work with Telstraclear and VOIP services with WorldXChange. All good.
Except that the other day I phoned to have my data speed increased only to find out that now you _must_ also rent a land line from them on _all_ internet connections. Thats $40 a month extra for something I don't want, don't need and is a complete waste of money.
So I quickly changed the subject and ended the call with no changes made *whew*!
So what was a perfectly good solution from telstra clear (seeing as they have the cables in the ground already) has now turned a greedy & underhanded which seems to me quite telecom-ish.
Now I've been out of the country for a few years - maybe this is the way things are done in NZ now? It seems telstra clear are looking to kill their existing customer base. I was looking for what the rest of the geeks think..?
To be honest - I'm disgusted at Telstra Clear !!
