Must admit I have been impressed with telecom fixed line pricing lately and I was surprised at the drop in mobile  roaming rates. But aren't the ACCC doing a investigation at the moment with mobile roaming rates.

It used to be that if you wanted top speed anywhere anytime you subcribe to xtra, xt.

Not anymore, but they are not below average, just, average.

Cant see why Telecom would want to offer naked type plans.

doesnt make sense for their business model?

Don't slam the door in the face of those dor-to-door sales guys.

I was considering changing ISPs and I got a knock from a Telecom sales guy. (this was divine intervention)

Switched from my previous plan with another ISP (65Gb) to the 150Gb plan, 12 mth contract.  Got 2 months free, free modem (don't need but might sell my old one) free AV (5 users) and local calls. $99.

Considering my current ISP uses Telecom infra (at least in part) I don't think my service will suffer and that is a PRETTY SHARP DEAL.

It pays to keep an eye on the market and know what is being offered, I get switched in a few weeks so fingers crossed.

Actually, your current ISP uses Chorus infrastructure, not Telecom. They are not the same company.

Bear in mind the free AV is McAfee - which is worse than no AV at all IMO. I would just ignore that and use MSE if anything.

Yeah, agree, McAfee should be on the other side of the ledger.

... just a little green ? wished they knocked at your door ?   irrespective of your personal views on AV SW or the finer points of monopoly breakups 2 months credit on a sharply priced plan still sounds good to me :-)

Don't take it the wrong way. I'm in no way denigrating your deal.

Green? Nah, I'm perfectly happy with my current UFB setup, thanks.

Have a happy day and enjoy your new contract.
