When are 8Mb customers going to get some real choices ?

Post by scottb721 » Tue Feb 02, 2010 9:37 pm

Moving back to 1.5 is not a realistic option when I'm getting the speeds show below. Need at least 15Gb peak also, which isn't exactly a lot. ADSL2 here is only with BP so is also a no-no.

How is Exetel looking after their 8Mb customers ? It is after all the premiuim ADSL1 speed.
Thanks

The choice is an NF plan that allows you to pay cost price for the 8192/384 port rental and get your data at cost price plus around 5 cents per gb.

You get the service speed you prefer and Exetel doesn't lose money providing it to you.

NF is $15 cheaper than my current 15/60 plan. Much data would i get for that $15 if i went over the included amount?
Thanks

NF plans carry $0.50 per GB excess usage charge. If you had $15 to "spend" that would be 30GB.

It isn't hard to work out what $15.00 buys you, with excess downloads charge at $0.50c per gigabyte; http://www.exetel.com.au/a_plan_pricing_new.php

Thanks all. Might be something to consider in a few months when the plan change fee goes back to normal.

I take it you mean Z/8192? This comes with 100gb at $90 before you start paying for the extra data.

Does that mean that the 100gb of included data is $50 and the port rental is $40?

If so, can there be an option to take it with less than 100gb of data or even with no included data and PAYG at 50c per gb?
