Hello Everyone,

I was curious about the new 'Telecom Broadband' offer for $16.95, I have had a look at the website

and can't find the answer to my question about how much data you get and what happens when you go over (back to dialup speed, or get charged $20/GB)

Reading through the page, I noticed a few more clauses which make this look more expensive such as

"If you are a Telecom home calling customer you can sign up to our Basic Broadband plan now and it will only cost you $16.95 per month for the first six months. That's the same price as our most popular Dial-Up plan!

If you sign up to any other Telecom Broadband Plan or you don't have your home calling with us you will still receive $13 off your Broadband monthly plan charges for the first six months."

So does this mean after six months it will cost $30 a month (with a 12 month contract)

Its worth noting that one can change plans and receive the credit. However you'll be paying slightly more (ie for the 3gb plan).

freitasm: This was discussed here before. It's a 200 MB plan. You pay this for six months then back to normal price.

Oops sorry, couldn't find the older thread before for looking, much like my car keys :)
