I'm on the current $49.95 plan..
So will i get automaticly changed over to the new $49.95 plan?

10gb extra..woohoo :P

It's $5/mth more if you don't get your phone line through them, $10/mth extra if you don't get tolls or phone line through them.

Most users have got tolls with Slingshot Detruire.

Their New Naked DSL plan, called Just Broardband (confusion?) looks really nice.

It still costs $5/mth more if you've only got tolls. I'd also expect a fair few on the current plans don't, since it didn't get them any DSL discount like it did in the past.

UPDATE:

There's been a slight delay meaning we can't update the website for NEW signups.

However, existing broadband customers can still request a plan change via calling us.

Go live is 3pm today for that.

Also, we've removed the "file sharing blocked" component from the starter plan. It's not necessary given the low data cap and speed.

We MAY have a solution to the $149 charge for porting your number to iTalk during a nDSL install too :)

Will keep you posted.

tick tock...
15:30 came... 15:30 went...
"Wednesday" came and "Wednesday" went...
Promises made to phone me... And alas... no ring

And here sadly I'm still typing this message from my old isp... Wink
This familiar feeling is not a good one to be had... Let's hope tomorrow will be "the day"

I'm still having dramas with sorting out our web creative.

Everything going to plan we'll launch this Friday morning.


Apologies.
