Not that Tasmanians can apply yet it seems, as it still won't let me apply.

@davidotas To avoid the cost in reconnecting it is best to apply just once you've relocated i.e. with the telephone active at the new place. These new plans/revisions would likely be available for a few months yet.

Okay, so assuming that the fault on the main page not allowing any Tasmanians to move address is fixed soon, are you saying I shouldn't sign up now but wait until I'm actually moved into my new house? Because I was just going to schedule it to be put on the day after my telephone is scheduled to be put on, is that not a good idea?

I know this is a stupid question since the plans are all available to sign up to now, again, unless you're a Tasmanian moving house, but if I sign up now I won't have to change my plan come September to get the new deal? Or should I just wait until September 1st to sign up? Sorry I just want to clarify before I sign up.

Hmm, my current plan is shown as:
Your ADSL Account Plan Details
Plan Type: TELP
Monthly Access Charge: $95.00
Peak Download Limit (Mbyte): 60000
OffPeak Download Limit (Mbyte): 54000
Service Line Speed: 8192/384

So it seems I would automatically move to one of these:
ForumAdmin wrote: Plan Name Speed MONTHLY PEAK OFF PEAK EXCESS CONTRACT
TL – CC 8I92/384 $100.00 45 GB 60 GB $3.00 6 MONTHS
TL – CD 8I92/384 $120.00 60 GB 60 GB $3.00 6 MONTHS
So, two options:
1) TL-CC pay an extra $5/month and reduce my peak by 15GB and increase off peak by 6GB
2) Tl-CD pay and extra $25/month and increase my off-peak by 6GB
You will notice that we have retained the current plans at lower monthly charges and/or increased peak down load allowances and added some additional plan optiions.

No current user of the current plans need take any action to obtain the advantages of the lower prices and/or increased allowances - they will automatically be adjusted in your favour on your September bill.
Could you please explain how either of these options are supposed to be in my favour ?

As it so happens, this month I'll likely exceed my download limits which is a bit unusual, but the reason I have the biggest package is because I need it....
Of course, at this rate it might work out cheaper to purchase multiple ADSL1 connections to combine together.

Or get ADSL2+ which is cheaper for faster speed and similar downloads, but this just isn't available for my exchange (MATRAVILLE) it seems :(

I'm currently on TELN (8192/384 24G/54G) at $75 per month.

So if I'm to be moved to "take advantage of these savings", do I get moved to
TL – CA 8192/384 $95.00 $75.00 15 GB 60 GB $3.00 6 MONTHS
(9G less peak, 6G more off-peak - net loss 3G for same monthly spend)

or
TL – CB 8192/384 $95.00 $85.00 30 GB 60 GB $3.00 6 MONTHS
(6G more peak, 6G more off-peak - but $10 more per month)

Either way, I'm not quite understanding where my "savings" (lower prices and/or increased allowances) are coming from.

Umm so in retaining cheaper bandwidth I lose 5gb from my peak usage with the TL-BB plan. I don't see where the advantage is to that?

- My mistake. The price decreased by $5 which I am more then happy with. Thanks exetel.

It is likely that the automatic migration being referred to only applies to those on newer TEL-xx plans, where the 1-Sep pricing and quotas do provide absolute gains. Older TELx plans were costed differently, so one of the following would apply:
  • You can explicitly choose to switch plans, and if you do you can only choose a new TEL-xx plan
  • You would remain on your TELx plan unless there is a TEL-xx option which is clearly in your advantage, in which case you *may* get migrated automatically, but I wouldn't think so
  • The TELx plans may, now or eventually, be terminated and since you are out of contract you would be forced to switch to another current plan of your choosing

True - I think I've been on this plan since about 2005, so it would appear I've done well if the current offers are bringing prices "down" to what I've been paying for years.

I think I'll stay where I am plan-wise till Exetel tell me otherwise.

Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't these two plans actually losing some peak downloads for the same price? Is this a negative bonus?! :?:

I hope I am putting this in the right place but just want to find out some info. Firstly what is the difference of the AA and AB, BA, BB plans etc. I am currently on TELB which is $35 a month with Service Line Speed: 256/64 and Peak Download Limit (Mbyte): 8000. I see there is now a TL AA plan which is the same price as what I am paying now but takes me to the next speed 512/128 but has a lower download limit of 6000 (Mbyte) that I can live with. If I wanted to go to this plan what do I do and will I incur any costs for doing so?
Thanks in advance.

Once they are available, you should be able to change through Member Facilities > ADSL > Change My Service.
There will be a $25 line speed charge.
No additional contract.

According to http://www.exetel.com.au/a_plan_pricing_new.php it states:
If you are transferring your ADSL1 service from another ISP THE ACTIVATION/CHURN CHARGE IS $0.00.
Can I ask why somebody moving from another ISP is being charged nothing, while existing Exetel customers will be charged $25 for changing plans/speeds? Have I actually understood this correctly?

Also, will current Tasmanian Exetel users be able to access these plans?

1) The plans are available to every Exetel user (Tasmanian or not).

2) There is no charge for changing plans at the same speed.

The TEL plans are quite old and haven't been offered for over nine months.

The TL - plans are the only plans Exetel offers now.

There is a $25.00 charge for changing line speeds.

i sent my churn form in on the 06/08/09 for TL-BB (30/60GB, $60). Now that the current TL-BB (30/60GB, $55) has changed according to http://exetel.com.au/a_plan_pricing_new.php, will i be moved onto this plan saving me $5 with the same quota once september hits? Also at the time i sent my form in the churn fees were $30 but now $0.00, what happens here?
