There is no way in the world at the current cost that a Zone 2/3 service could be sold at $60.00.

At $70.00 it is heavily subsidised by Exetel.

From from what I can see Exetel's 8 mbps pricing is already the best on the market.
It was one of the best ... but since bigpond announced for 8M adsl1 and adsl2+ pricing for the 200G plan ... maybe need to include 8M adsl1 and adsl2+ plan depends the highest speed people can get from Telstra exchanges

No worries i full understand. Even at $70 for $60 peak and $100 off peak is very CHEAP. I was only asking cause im a full time uni student that still have 2 and a half years to go until i have finished my degree. But from what i understand there will be no peak and off peak limits, just one limit. And thats no worries. It would be great if that limit is around the 100G - 200G for $70. Im a heavy downloader.

There are no better 8 mb plans from any provider. However this thread is not about 8 mb ADSL1.

Have been waiting a long time for this decision :)

Look forward to seeing the plans.

I thought they didnt want to do business whilst you had Optus etc serving ADSL2 ?

That was the original stance which seems to have changed.

Is ADSL2+ naked going to be available under the new contract?

there has been no mention of it but I can't recall any reseller of Telstra that has been able to offer a naked service which might just indicate that it's not even an option, Telstra recently did a trial campaign of their own naked service but it wasn't a naked service in the typical sense that we're used to, it had an active phone line with call restrictions to block outgoing calls, perhaps that's their interpretation of a naked service

Shouldn't exetel wait on signing contracts until after the ACCC has reviewed the recent anti competitive complaint from Internode & iinet? Or will there be a clause to drop prices depending on the outcome of same?

That's a very good point, but there _may_ never be a time when no action is in place against Telstra and what's more, any action could take years to progress to a state that could be of any benefit.

ACCC may be able to order damages retrospectively and force wholesalers to be reasonably re-compensed for inflated wholesale pricing from and to any points in time.

Our view is that legal action against Telstra on ADSL2 pricing is unlikely to produce anything productive in any realistic time frame and if it does then that would be the time to consider alternatives.

In the meantime, which could be a very long time, business life has to go on.

I have seen no indication that Telstra intends to provide 'naked' ADSL services.
