bonkiebonks: Also, if we were to compare Vodafone's plan with Telecom's, I'd say Vodafone's is far superior in that their entry level plan does not have an exorbitant overage data price. Where in Telecom's 200MB plan, the end user gets charged 2c/MB, and on Vodafone you get speed-limited, which I believe is only fair since a new broadband user is generally less aware of going over the bundled data.
callum62: ARGGHH!! really frustrating.
Im an old IHUG customer on Broandband 3....I want to upgrade to Ultimate with talk 3....Where the hell on the webpage do I sign up??
Tried going through the sign me up part, but faced with a choice of "I dont have internet at home" OR "I have internet on another network"
Answer - I have internet with you guys already!!
Also logged onto my account to see if change account details was there....no luck though???

Now, thanks for that. This is one way to compare the plans that work with me. Not the statements I read in the previous page.
Not as bad as Telecom offering Broadband Plans with a 200MB Data cap & then 2cents per MB thereafter. Before you say it, yes my statement is related to the topic, because you have made a point about how pathetic 1GB of Data usuage is, whereas Telecom offer FAR worse & are trying to entice people to move away from Dialup.
OT - This will only result in the customer losing out big time with huge bills & Telecom know this very well, hence the way they marketed this whole plan & it's very promotion in all media.
At least with Vodafone's 1GB Plan, you have the option of surfing out the rest of the month at dial up speeds, or "double your data for another $5" at full speed.
bigal_nz: I hope this is considered on topic.
I signed up for the Red Network on the way to work this morning at 6:30am - didnt have any wait other than listening to there trouble shooting message which I could not seem to bypass.
I was a bit peeved that apparently the 20Gb plan is $90 (minus the $30 rebate) so its $60, BUT the guy told me you need to add a Talk plan like Talk1 etc, which is another $15 so its really $75. Anyone confirm this is correct???? If so sounds like false advertising to me.
Also the guy said that they have Huawei DSLAM's, and the a Huawei ADSL modem would probably work best. I cant however find anyone selling Huawei modems!!
I see a thread also saying Huawei filters are best - again cant find em.....
Anyone able to help out here?
On another note I went to a guys house the other day who was about 10m away from the exchange. His attenutation was 4/1 - NICE!
bigal_nz: Thanks Paul,
I have been told that I cant get it for $60 I must have either of the following:
1. Talk plan (like talk1 which will cost me and extra $15 making the price after rebate $75) OR:
2. My mobile on you choose in which case it will be $60 plus the cost of the mobile plan
Can you please confirm?
Secondly are you sending out Huawei modems?
