Sunday 2nd March a gentleman from Optus knocked on my door to inform me that Dial up internet was no longer available from Optus and if I did not upgrade to broadband I would no longer have an optus Internet connection. I asked a few questions but as his english wasnt perfect a lengthy explanation did not eventuate so I signed up, and Ive been shopping for broadband anyway.
I thought it interesting that dial up wasnt available so took a look at the Optus site and they were still selling dial up so I contacted them, their response :
“Optus Dialup is still going to be available to existing customers, but as of 1st April 2008, Optusnet will no longer be offering Dialup to new customers.”Needless to say im pretty angry, just want to put the word out incase any one else signed up under these false pretences. There is a 10 day cooling off period which I will be taking up and Ill take my business elsewhere.
