High Cost of wireless broadband

I know this is a supplier issue out of Exetel's control, but why does wireless broadband cost so much for downloads compared to ADSL1 or 2 or even NBN? As an example, Exetel offers an ADSL2 service with 1000GB of downloads for $55. I am paying $50 for 12GB of wireless because I can't get ADSL1 in my...

I was interested to here the recent announcement that HSPA costs would be re...

Signal loss too high for ADSL1

When i moved to this house about 2 years ago I thought ADSL would be no problem because I am 2km from the Albion Park (NSW) exchange straight down the highway. I applied through Exetel and was rejected (by Telstra presumably) due to line loss too high. At the time I complained direct to Telstra that...
