By COB Sunday we will reduce the number of HSPA plans to five:
When will these revised plans be available to order?

I had interpreted "COB Sunday" to be Sunday June 7th, but as it's now June 15th does this mean the plans won't be available till July 1st? or does it mean the revised plans are still under review?

We ran into a glitch in our endeavours to really simplify the pans.

We are in the process of putting them up now.

We have made the necessary changes to the HSPA web page and order forms for the new plans.

The main changes are:

1) Activation charge is now zero

2) PFWYU plan now has a flat charge of 1.5 cents per mb (no hike to 2.5 cents after 1 gb)

3) The 8 gb plan has been removed

4) The order form has been simplified

They remain at a good price point in my opinion, particularly the zero quota 1.5c plan.
I notice they do not include the 100 free voip calls.
Are they being discontinued for current HSPA users?

These changes are reflected on the public Exetel web page, but still need updating in the member facilities.

Maybe I should have waited. I applied to port my Mobile X plan over to HSPA a few days ago and got the $25 activation charge applied last night. :oops:

I did much the same thing, in what must have been a fit of silliness :oops:
But then, so far at least those 'old' plans have the benefit (for now) of 100 free voip calls, and the new plans do not.

I suspect most people do not use many of these services or already have access to them via other accounts. I'm sure if you require any of the services they could still be obtained if you requested.

We use 2 email address at the moment a use the hosed web space and the free SMS feature.
Exetel HSPA is now our only Internet accout.
I was surprised to see these features taken off HSPA and left on the ADSL accounts.
We can only use satellite or 3G Exetel is a pleasant experience after 3 yrs of bordernet satellite.

The first post in this thread states ..
9) No inclusions other than 5 email addresses and 200 mb of web space
Yet, if you view the HSPA Broadband prices, the plan inclusions are stated as
With each Exetel Post Paid HSPA plan you also get the following additional facilities:

* 1 email address in the form of - yourname@exemail.com.au
* A permanent IP address (with the ability to change it if you wish to do so at any time)
* Usage meters for your HSPA and any other Exetel service you choose to use
* A comprehensive User Facility that allows you to manage every aspect of every Exetel service
1. Is it one email address or nine ?
2. Is it no web space or 200 Mb of web space ?

HI
I have my adsl and voip connections with Exetel and a happy customer.
I recently bought a usb modem with 3. Dont ask me why , just a spontaneous thing I guess.
I am living on the north coast and find I dont get a service :idea: The lights were on but I wasn’t home.
Again dont ask me why I didn’t investigate. So I have a Huawei E160G. I am assuming it is locked to 3.
Will Exetel hspa work with this modem on the north coast. I have a G3 optus mobile connection which works
in my area.
thanks
