$15.00 PSTN Line Rental On Optus ADSL2 Plans

Post by ManUtdFans » Wed Feb 18, 2009 6:31 pm

Just received this email newsletter from Exetel.
I am with ADSL2+ plan: INCPHONE A

Not sure is my phone with Optus or Telstra?

Optus, INCPHONE A is a grandfathered plan (no longer offered to new users).

So it seems I have the price deduction then?

Does that mean that grandfathered plans such as that will not change? (ie no price reduction)

As far as I am aware, the only plans affected are the INC2DSL plans.

INCPHONE plans do not appear to be receiving a decrease or increase in price.

I'm also on INCPHONE A ($65 18GB). I'm confused about the INCPHONE A plans compared to the current plans. Are we better off changing to a current plan?

Any Exetel forum administrator here can answer those questions?

I've been with Exetel a long time, and have come out of contract and seen my plan "grandfathered" a couple of times.

You can change to a current plan, if there is a suitable cheaper one. Just hang on and smile if there isn't. When Exetel eventually wants to kill the old plan off, they will invite you to change. IncphoneA is $65/18GB; a new IncDSLB is $65/12 GB.
