Am i hallucinating or did the price of 1500X just went up from $35 to $38? I wanted to upgrade this friend of mine's plan from NF/512 to 1500X. I am looking after their connection and tech stuff (he has been with Exetel since 2005).

It appears that as of today the $3 account administration charge is rolled into the the total plan price.

What is the service plan name that you wish to upgrade your current plan?
The 1500X would be sufficient for my needs but if the conditions of the unseen email are the same as the first post in this topic then the 1500Y would be relevant.

Regards C Bumkin
I will get someone to reply to your ticket shortly.

Will this 'ADSL1 Low Speed Services Offer' still be available when the T1500-x plans appear in the customer facilities ?

Probably not - but so much changes every day it is impossible to be certain.

The offer is really good but we assume if people don't take it up after a month then it isn't what they want.

I am 'Out of contract' and not sure what my options are. The mobile capped plans do not seem appropriate, that is not looking for a mobile. We have a poor land line.Poor line due to distance from exchange and interference including interference from electric fences. Currently have 256/64, speeds we never reach, and use approximately 1Gb per month. What are my options other than to pay the $10 per month increase for what is a slow speed and 1Gigabyte.

I've got some rural cousins I semi-mind the internet for, mostly email or VoIP use, so between 1 and 3 GB, and they are considering either going to wireless broadband, $5 + $20/GB or the ADSL2 1500 kbps PAYU plan - $36 + $1/GB, which is really the better option for them, and needs no new hardware. You can't run VoIP on the 256 plans.

You could look also at T1.5-30 for $50 and get more allowance than you will use. If these options are more than $10 on top of your present plan, stay as you are. The change options are in the user facility.

Deeper pockets can look at the 8192 kbps plans, but these don't have a guaranteed speed - full speed needs you to be near the exchange. You modem status will give an indication of what can be achieved on your line.

Telstra makes sure you can get full speed up to 1500, so your poor speed on a 256 kbps plan sounds like a problem to sort out. Does the house phone connection run alongside the electric fence? This problem is worth starting a new thread to discuss.

PS You don't say where you are - is there any change of an Optus facility in your exchange? (it would have to be a large centre)
