DonGould:BraaiGuy: Just got a reply from Telstraclear.
The 500% more promo is only applicable on the Homeplan network. I'm on the In Home, Naked Broadband.
That no good. I am stuck on 60GB of data but not interested in upgrading to the 100mbit download and 10mbit upload warpspeed plan just to have 150GB of data. ($155.95 per month)
The homeplans give you 100GB Data + Phone + Free wireless modem + Free connection for $90/month, or 150GB data for $105per month.
That's quite a good summary, but I'm quite confused.
Why are you still an Inhome HFC customer? Why not just move to V/ADSL?
DonGould:BraaiGuy: Our street is on cable. No copper
Really. Where is this area that Chorus has no copper?
quickymart: It's a best effort basis - no one guarantees service. But at the very least he should be reporting the fault and giving them a chance to try and fix it.
Malboo: I don't need warp speed just an upgrade to 70 or 80 gig plan would be nice but oh no you have to go from 60 gig to a 100 gig
warp speed at a disgusting price hike difference , shame on you Telstraclear.
Yeah I agree with some the other loyal customers about getting free extra bandwidth, my mate at Telecom got a free upgrade
from 20 gig to a 100 gig,and no I don't want to go to Telecom but may be forced to when my contract runs it's course.
boo hisssss to you Telstra
Malboo: why can Telecom upgrade their customers maybe they don't have many

I would suspect that Telecom have been loosing customers so have capacity to sell. Telecom have also said they'll take a loss to keep bb customers as they consider them strategic. I suspect we'll see that change when the next set of figures hit shareholders.
I suspect TCL are milking the uptake of Warp currently and using price to manage uptake. Installations cost them capital, so they're going to be looking for the highest APRU they can get to fund more connections.
There's also only so many techs to do the installations, so I'd suspect that has something to do with the offerings as well.
If they offer 500Gb for $99 will that cause 35,000 users to all want to upgrade? That's $3,500,000 in modems and $3,500,000 in installation costs, so $7 million in capital they have to find.
Would you pay a $200 upgrade fee?
