Just saw this on here (if it's not yperlinked can someone do it for me please, I have no idea how)

This isn't ADSL2+ is it? Would their network be able to handle it?

It sounds like they are moving in the right direction, just wondering though how much more that service will cost. I wouldn't mind spending an extra $10-$20 a month if it's worth it but Telstraclear's cable service will still be far superior right? Just got to find a place that will let me have it Smile

The current quality of service is not the best and when using software such as skype or online games it is a pain. The new 'product' or plans will have a higher speed to support such applications and hopefully lower ping rates which mean time sensitive burst data will get to the other end faster. 

It isnt adsl2 but more of a 'you get priority over other users' guarantee. The backhaul network will need to have an increased capacity if a large amount of users switch over to these new plans, which they should be doing anyway because there isnt even enough capacity to cover adsl1 users.
