I still prefer a no-frills plan but with bigger quota. I'm sort of person that needs large off-peak quota but not these "frills".

I know the ADSL2 "no-frills" plan has not been published. is it too late for John to consider a no-frills plan with the same off-peak quota as the current INC2DSLA but with a reduce price?

I agree with jintao.

An ADSL2+ no-frills plan with good offpeak download limit & maybe also good peak download limit as well would be nice

As I never use my free SMSs or email to fax functionality but I do use my bandwidth/phoneline and really why pay extra when your not using them. :D

Thanks for reading

Is the PAYUDSL2 plan gone? I cant find it on the website. i'm on this plan and it's perfect for me and i was about to move my mother in law onto it also, possibly my parents also.

The PAYU plans are replaced with "no frill" plans. See http://forum.exetel.com.au/viewtopic.ph ... 15#p248415

so am i missing the point or did they actually just discontinue PAYUDSL2 (ADSL2 max 5g +5g, +phone +voip + extras etc) great value for reall low usage at $40 a month + data at dirt chreap rates. I dont really see any adsl2 + phone plans that compare to the old PAYUDSL2 plan. I'm talking light usage here. It's a shame because i had a few people interested in moving to the PAYUDSL2 plan but i dont think the new plan options really offer enough of an incentive to move in comparison. I just moved myself from an old adsl2 plan to PAYUDSL2 a month ago does it mean i will be forced up to one of the new plans in the not too distant future?

Old plans are always "grandfathered" meaning you will continue on them until your contract is up, and then they continue on a month to month basis so long as Exetel is satisfied to provide them. If the position ever changes, you will get an email giving yuo at least 30 days notice that the plan is going to be discontinued.

http://www.exetel.com.au/a_plan_pricing_adsl2_nf.php shows NF/DSL2(Full) for $25 for 6GB + 12GB when bundled with a $25/month phone line or $35 for the equivalent unbundled NF/DSL2(BYO Line) plan

If the new very poor value plans are coming in on the 1st of July, why can I no longer change to the old PAYUDSL2 plan?

I like this ADSL2 Plans - Including Rental Of The Standard PSTN Telephone Line From Exetel, most importantly no contract
but in the exetel website, https://www.exetel.com.au/nf_adsl2_full ... gent_code=
when I fill in the order form, there is a 12 months contract period inside.

do I find a wrong order form?

Do you mean this pricing page (http://www.exetel.com.au/a_plan_pricing_adsl2_nf.php) for the NF/DSL2(FULL) plan? Where does it say no contract? There is this line at the bottom:

** The initial contract period is 12 months. If a service is cancelled within the initial six month period a $100.00 contract cancelation fee will apply.

But the double asterisks are not actually referenced by anything, as far as I can see. Maybe that referencing has accidentally been omitted.

I was going to change to a PAYU1500 plan (about $37.50/mth I think) earlier this month but didn't get around to it thinking I had till the end of the month, when I looked yesterday I couldn't find it, so yeah why cant we change before the end of the month ? And I asked yesterday , did the PAYUDSL have the 100 free VOIP calls ? I thought they did. If so these new light user plans are much much poorer value for money.

Do you mean the first posting in this forum back in May, where it was said, "It is early days in making any decision but we considering plans along the lines of..."?

If so, I would hardly call that a binding statement of what the plans would finally be.

ADSL1 plans are a dying breed. The costs of providing an ADSL1 connection via Telstra are actually higher than the costs of providing a much faster ADSL2+ connection via Optus. So I'm not surprise that the value of ADSL1 plans (in both absolute and relative-to-ADSL2+ terms) is declining.

But, bottom line is that pricing is subject to change at any moment, and these No Frills plans are the replacement plans to the PAYU. Since PAYU plans are not available to new customers any more it isn't any use comparing them. You should be comparing the "No frills" plans to the other current offerings of ISPs.

Also, autron, past posts may have alluded to 1 July but the website (http://www.exetel.com.au/adsl1-nf-pricing.php) has a title of "Exetel's Residential ADSL1 (No Frills) New User Services (18/6/09)" indicating an 18 June inception.
