Re: ADSL2 Plan Changes

(Apologies: Yes, I know I've already whinged here http://forum.exetel.com.au/viewtopic.php?f=288&t=35737 but these latest changes have only added to my feeling of grief) Imagine me on the 1st April, feeling all wonderful about how I was finally with Exetel's most up-to-date plans rather than my old...

Or you could choose the excess option and have full speed during peak in return for paying the excess, just as you had before.

There is more flexibility now, not less.

Peter, the changes are improvements which benefit the customer. How could you possibly be unhappy about that?

It has already been confirmed a number of times in this thread so you have nothing to worry about.

Re: ADSL2 Plan Changes

Thankyou for the generous increase of quota. Exetel just keeps improving! much less costly, way to do "shaping". I didn't realise that the old system was costly for you and it appears to be still active on our account. Does a request to remove it need to be made or will this change automatically can...

Re: ADSL2 Plan Changes

Can VOIP be port prioritsed out of the shapping limit? Would there be any point to that if shaped to 512k? Normally for voip you are constrained by your upload speed anyway so the difference is hardly anything. Shaper must be able to recognise VoIP packets and allow them to pass while shaping all o...

Re: ADSL2 Plan Changes

2) All plans will be changed from having an excess charge if a user exceeds their peak period allowance to shaping to 512 kbps down Wouldn't Exetel be giving up a lot of money in excess fees by doing this? Yes. Shaped to 512k would suit me fine but I would rather have Exetel profitable. I remember ...

Does Exetel mobile support video calling

I currently have a 3G phone with Telstra (not NextG). Does video calling still work with Exetel?

Thanks

If you use codecs like G.729 or iLBC or even the inferior GSM you will not likely hear a difference.

Let's face it, most people happily use mobilephones that use the GSM codec.
