Re: Off Peak Periods

It's good to see a few users are happy with existing arrangements for off-peak, however in the interests of maintaining and attracting new customers, I would like to see off-peak extended (back) to 12 midnight - 12 noon. When joining Exetel and recommending them to friends & family, I had always con...

How much will I pay for Exetel VoIP?

Hi guys, A seemingly silly question I know, but I'm a little confused about how much I will pay for Exetel VoIP. A little bit of info - I'm currently on IncPhoneB and have put in a request to move to INCPHONE B. I understand INCPHONE B comes with 100 free VoIP calls per month. My questions are - 1) ...

Re: Possible Change To Off Peak Period

I would oppose this possible change. I think it's an interesting idea and it's great Exetel are allowing us to discuss this change but personally it would not benefit me. If I am doing any off-peak downloading I queue it when I go to sleep (usually around midnight) and then the computer shuts down a...

ADSL1 to ADSL2 - no connection, no sync

Hi guys, First let me say this issue is not about my Exetel connection (which has been flawless for over 2 years). My friend has recently changed from Exetel ADSL1 (1.5Mbit) to Exetel ADSL2+ with Optus phone. The changeover occurred on the 18th and is confirmed on the application status website. Sin...

Re: "Negativity/"Sh**storm" On 'Whirlpool'

Thank you for your response. Although it probably didn't need explaining, I can better understand what your point of view is now and all your points are completely valid. At the end of the day, I only want the best for Exetel - because the better they 'go', the more value I see out of my plan (no pr...

Re: "Negativity/"Sh**storm" On 'Whirlpool'

While I agree with ForumAdmin's post, I think it is a poor show by any representative of a company with 90,000 customers to be name calling and using teenage retorts. I am a loyal Exetel customer, have referred many friends - defending and supporting on Whirlpool (when appropriate, after all, I am j...

Re: HSPA Loan Service To Customers Of Other ADSL2

Wow this is absolutely top notch service from Exetel. I have always dreaded any Internet downtime (need it for education, and entertainment!) and to get a HSPA loan in the mean time is perfect. Hopefully I'll never have to use it, rockin' my Exetel (Optus) ADSL2+ for some years now. Anyhow, great ne...

Re: Still shaped in new month

Chalk me up as another user still shaped.

Hopefully it's just a teething issue, I can understand the problems then. But if this is going to be a regular occurrence I won't be using the shaping option again (likely to the delight of Exetel :)

Re: Shaping/Throttling - is it working?

Thanks to all for their replies and input.

I am entirely convinced shaping is working by now though, because I am still shaped in the new month. I guess I'll continue this post in the other current thread.

Cheers.

Re: Shaping/Throttling - is it working?

So I am really confused as to how I was able to download 850MB at 64kbit! I don't think it's even possible? Is there some sort of a delay in the time it takes to kick the throttle in? I can understand it wouldn't be instant, but perhaps every 5 or even 30 minutes it should tick over, right? Disclai...

Shaping/Throttling - is it working?

Hi there, As the month comes to a close I find myself as usual tethering on the point of my peak limit. I knew I would get close and really liked the idea of being able to shape myself so I chose to do so sometime during the middle of the month. I look at my usage today and I am 850MB over my limit....
