Well the Telstra ADSL2 pricing has been added to the members section, you think they would have updated the 8192 prices why they were there.
There are no current plans to change the 8192 pricing - it has only just been done.

So new customers can get the below plan

8192- TE-K $45.00 10GB Peak - 20GB off Peak

But existing (long term) customers have to settle for

8192- TE-M $65.00 20GB Peak 120GB off Peak
or the
ADSL2 TE-2D - $65.00 50GB Peak 120GB off peak?

I can not order the TE-L or TE-K plan as it its not present on the "order" page even though it is visible in the list on your website out side of the members area. (I am existing member)

Generally, new plans are not added to the user facilities until close to the end of the month.

I chose 30/30 ADSL1 8mbit plan. I also chose to have a new contract as it avoids the 20$ fee (or that's what the site indicates) and I'm fine with a new 6 month contract. It's a nice quota boost over my current 10/30 plan for the same price. ADSL 2 is still too dear for me considering it would only affect my upload speed.

Generally speaking this means that Telstra ADSL2 will become available on some 1,200 exchanges where the overwhelming bulk of Exetel's current 8192/384 are located.

We are interested in your views on whether you would prefer ADSL2 to 8192/384 and for what reasons (other than the higher upload speeds) as there may not be that much real download speed difference in regional areas and, not that we have any Exetel experience as yet, in other areas where a 'fast' 8192/384 service is available.

Any ideas would, as usual, be welcome.
LOL. Of course we would.
ADSL2 across the board over many ISPs is cheaper than ADSL1.
Sync speeds are better and why NOT have a better upload speed? Makes browsing all the more snappier..its not ALL about download speed.

As soon as my exchange is enabled for ADSL2 I'll be moving to an ISP that offers me a similar plan so I can SAVE MONEY.
..Unless.. Exetel's ADSL2 prices are in line of course.
