We are about to move house and have been with Telstra for home phone, internet and mobile. Much as Telstra sucks we have stayed with them because I get free calls to my husband’s work mobile. We have been frustrated with the ADSL because even though its meant to be as fast as cable we’ve had lots of times when it hasn’t worked and our home phone has been dodgy as well. I’m not sure if its just a problem at our current place or not.
Coming from Sydney where we had cable broadband with Telstra we were frustrated that only Transact offered it as we’re not at all interested in pay TV and all their packages seem geared towards including pay TV.
I’ve been trying to compare provider packages online (with Optus thrown in for good measure) but its very hard to make accurate comparisons so want to get opinions from here.
Basically I have a very low use mobile (as phone is paid off I pay $15 a month) we make very few local phone calls but a few interstate calls a month. To be honest I can’t remember what our download for internet is but we want a fast speed connection but don’t download movies etc.
I’m aware we can bundle with ACTEWAGL and would be interested if people think bundling is worthwhile (we will have gas as well as electricity).
Thanks for your help
