Re: FAQ

I would bet that M$ want it for similar reasons to uPnP .... it helps open up your console more easily and quickly, potentially giving you a great big security hole. Learn to do port forwarding, disable uPnP immediately if you have it open. Many modem/routers also have uPnP available to the Interne...

Re: So Telstra just sent us a letter about ADSL2+ being enab

Okay a straight forward question: What (On a technical level) does a Top Hat system do, or allow, that wasn't possible before? Essentially before this tophat equipment, those relying on RIMs (or mini exchanges), were limited to ADSL1 services or slow ADSL2 services. Now with tophat equipment those ...

Re: So Telstra just sent us a letter about ADSL2+ being enab

For any users using TW (Telstra Wholesale) plans at exchanges that also have AAPT equipment ... well, some users are being migrated across to AAPT services. This is a change in wholesaler provider usage, your actual plan won't change. So, I expect that if you have TW available but also have AAPT ava...

Re: Unplanned Outage AAPT DSL Services 23rd Nov 2011 19.30

Is this issue back again? Got a service down for perhaps an hour now? Not sure when it dropped, but it was okay at 10:22pm and is not now okay and hasn't been for at least the last 20 minutes now.

Optus phone hijacks browser with Optus Zoo login

How can we remove the browser hijacking which wants you to login to Optus Zoo? I have an Ideos X1 phone that was purchased as Optus pre-pay. The modem works fine as a mobile hotspot, but the internal phone's web browser redirects to the Optus Zoo login screen for new links that open the browser. I d...

Re: International links from Victoria

I was having problems during the night, went to bed and am okay now.

But I have a customer on a HSPA service, she can get to www.exetel.com.au but can't get to many other sites including hotmail.com -- there are timeouts.

So, is anyone else having problems with an HSPA service now?

Re: Price Increase For Out Of Contract Customers - Continued

I have been an Exetel customer for a number of years now and for the most part have been happy with the service that has been provided and even persuaded some of my friends to get an account, however, with the latest price increase for out of contract users which came on top of the forced change to...

Thanks but what is the answer? :)
The answer is that ADSL1 users have a choice of 6 month contract or 12 month contract. The latter is good to lock in the plan for 12 months, ie, no more price changes. In either case, it is zero cost plan change.

Re: Price Increase For Out Of Contract Customers - Continued

previous question: what would be contract break charge (expect it should be $40 as that is the waiver charge) This has been answered previously, in short, NOT entering into a contract at the cost of $40 is NOT like entering a contract (zero cost). If you break the contract, then the full $100 penal...

Re: Price Increase For Out Of Contract Customers - Continued

No it will more likely be your exchange is not Powertel/AAPT enabled. The fact your exchange supports ADSL2 does not mean you are able to get ADSL2 from the provider of your choice! More than likely you can only get expensive ADSL2 on Telstra infrastructure. What exchange are you on? There is more ...
