Well I read this as Exetel usually do have good deals on communications but I nearly fell off my chair with the "fine print"New Mobile Plans Giving Big Discounts From Your ADSL Monthly Charges
... contents of email ...
Well that is about 5x-25x more than everyone else (especially considering most Optus Cap Plans are free and unlimited$0.25 per SMS
That is $280 per GB, or about 8x-10x more than a wireless broadband plan.$0.275 per MB excess data rate.
Holy smoking phone bill Batman! $38.5c on every phone call that is made. Not answered, made. Why do you think voicemail and "the person you are calling is unavailable" messages were inroduced by Telcos.$0.385 flagfall
$1 a minute! Jebus! And that is on top of the 38.5c you just paid to dial 8 digits.$0.99 per minute call rate
What do you really get for your money before the phone bill goes in to astronaut territory? well, lets break it down.
$14/mo - 18 calls (3 mins) and 29 Exetel-Exetel calls
$19/mo - 49 calls (3 mins) and 44 Exetel-Exetel calls
$35/mo - 131 calls (3 mins) and 131 Exetel-Exetel calls
$59/mo - 245 calls (3 mins) and 590 Exetel-Exetel calls
For every additional minute per call, take 0.3 of a call off your allowance (so 10 minutes extra on ones calls uses the cost of 3 calls).
For every 27 text messages, take another 2 calls off.
Better not exceed your cap, or that $20 discount on your ADSL is certainly not going to be a loss for Optus, they'll be making that up in spades on your mobile bill.
