Don't forget you risk the excess data fee of 18c per MB until the maximum plan cost is reached which is $69.90.

If you do the maths that is a buffer of 194.4* MB shared across both peak AND off-peak. Very little room for error or its an extra $35 on top of the bill for you!
... Nasty catch and possibly why they can afford the low base cost.

P.S. Also once you hit the cap you can either buy a pricey data block or upgrade to a more expensive plan.

P.P.S. Looks like I was wrong, there was a little blood left in the stone... 1500X 15 GB ON 120 GB OFF $40... Surely a plan that would be considered "Hurry, offer will not last long"'? New Customers Only?

Wow that new 1500X looks very tempting for my mate.

Thanks John.

Looks like I'll have to go for another walk and see if they're interested in swapping plans again lol.

Where did you find that.?

I couldn't find it. I hope you're right because I'll swap all my friends over to that plan.

EDIT: Just noticed this new plan on Whirlpool in the Exetel update ADSL1 plans posting.

This is exactly what I have been asking for- but it is not available to current Exetel users.

Why is this so?

Why not look after your current customers who have been loyal?

We completed the review of the ADSL1 plans earlier this morning adding a 1500/256 plan for $A35.00 per month with 10gb peak/10gb off peak which will be put on the web site when the resources become available.

There are no more planned changes to 1500 or 8192 ADSL1 plans.

We will now look at ADSL2 and wireless broadband.

Where did you find that on DODO site?

I couldn't find it. I hope you're right because I'll swap all my friends over to that plan.
If you want to keep extolling the virtues of DODO I suggest you do it somewhere else - it is not appropriate here....any future posts along those lines will be deleted.

As a long term Exetel customer you would know that any customer requested plan change only comes in to effect from the 1st of the following month and therefore we seldom update the user facilities before the last few days of the month.

There are rumours on Whirlpool, started by a guy who says he works or is affiliated with Telstra, that they will be releasing new plans on the 25th when they will be phasing out 1500k and slower plans. Everything will be 8000k or faster.

Does that make sense ?

If they're pushing their T-Box then its entirely possible.

Can't wait for the lawsuits with exetel undercutting the wholesale cost lol

Personally, I haven't talked to anyone from Telstra for a very long time - I can't remember the last time so I would have no idea of any future plans.

From what other people tell me - Telstra may well announce various new wholesale initiatives in the near future - what the details may be I don't know.

July 25th is a Sunday - not the sort of day many announcements are made in our industry.
