Beyond the expected

TransACT give basic packages a speedbump

By johnboy 28 April 2005 9

CityNews have a story on TransACT services getting a speedbump to the basic packages.

Compare and contrast to the original media release. Nice work if you can get it.

Of greater concern is when is TransACT going to be funded properly to expand the fibre service to all Canberrans?

What’s Your opinion?

TransACT’s big problem is that its lines are strung from telegraph poles and these don’t exist in the new suburbs where everything is underground. Not sure how they plan to get around this.

Note: if you are an existing customer you have to ASK for the faster speed and sign up for 12 months – if you don’t you’ll remain on the old slow speeds.

1mpbs is still very slow for broadband, but at least it’s a start. Interestingly, webone also advised its TransACT customers this week it was giving them free download upgrades – competition is starting to pay off it seems.

Look at the cost of MOG servers in other countries.

Of course they paid citynews! All its ‘stories’ are advertorials!

Pay to run the ‘story’?! I assume you have to pay for any ‘advertisment’ you place in city news. I guess they discovered some extra cash since they started producing ads inhouse.

Telstra are about as helpful as a mousetrap ina condom.

The issue is more Telstra’s monopoly over the cable network in the outer/newer suburbs that is preventing TransAct from expanding.

Assuming they didn’t pay CityNews to run the story…

No byline on it.

1500k is the standard package?

“City News, your local source of press releases”
I’m sure that City News have some kind of decent journalism, but this isn’t an example of it.
To the same extent, TransAct should be pleased that they got their words in print…

…and I get 1500k on my telstra phone line.
