Okay they have customer service and network issues but I have to admire them

While most Toll providers sit there and moan their a55es off about "not unbundlling" Woosh and saturn (back in the gool ol days) have setup their own alternate networks and offered Internet and phone services to the wider public.

They have spent huge capital into this, probably won't get it back but good on em....

TelstraClear's "HomePlan" offer, where thet *might* reduce the line rental if you spend heaps on TollCalls also offering among/the highest toll charges in the country!

TCL and Telecom are really one and same - it's just one in NZ based and the other Australian. They both bleat about their troubles gaining market share on the other's turf and how unfair it is at home..

sbiddle you are correct and it is difficult for both companies in each others markets. Although compared to Telecom, Telstra is a 60 ton bipolar gorilla with a sledge hammer.
