There’s a ‘free’ wireless internet deal for those Canberran’s on the Northside down to roughly Torrens/Farrer in the south, on offer from a company called iBurst.
The catch is that you have to buy a wireless iBurst modem (they quote $259.95 + $10 delivery), and a setup fee of $149. For this, you get a tiny 200Mb free data per month (both upload and download is counted), and anything over this is charged at a hefty 22c per meg (ie $220 per Gb!).
Bit expensive for me, and I don’t live in the coverage zone, but others may find this useful – perhaps if you just do email once per week? But then again, if this is you, a pre-paid dialup account is probably more ideal.

For what it’s worth…..
