I spoke with Adam and they said that we shouldnt have a problem not getting it it our area as telstra cannot supply a port at the exchange for broad band. I am doind speed tests and screen shots of the appalling wireless broadband we have with telstra and then as soon as applications are open again for adam in july we wil be applying formthe grant for free installtion and joining adam with no contract.
Bigpond I beleiv want $ 200 to get out of the contract and, but i will be fighting that as the speeds they are supplying on wirless braodband are similar to dial up and they are not prepared to do anything about it.
We did the search on Teltra web site adn it said we could get it but then upon calling them the said there was no ports available at the exchnage, no waiting list for one and seemingly impossible to get one !
We are really struggling getting a proper broadband service.
We could apply FOC for application to internode, but as telstra wont supply a port at the exhange for an adsl line its usless.
Soo frustrated, we have put up with this 3rd rate wireless service from telstra for nearly a year and its got worse, fequest dial speeds !!
I spoke to Adam Max today & they said we were able to get the grant, there are 3 houses near us that all use it in Aldinga. Our dongle is getting worse & it drives me mad trying to phone the UK always several broken calls!!!
Fingers crossed eh!!!!
Im so glad we are not alone !!
We want to use skype and it is usless, I braks up and pixelates...
I have just bee speaking to Bigpond about their crap service and I will be damded if I am paying to break the contract on s//t service !! they arnt even prepared to do anything about it !!
Good Luck, I beleive grant applications are open again today
Was happy as a pig in s..t with adam max as for the first 6 weeks ish it was fantastic ! could use skype anytime etc...and a proper internet service.
Then I told all the neighbours and gradually it has got worse and worse and now constantly dropping out and with speeds less than dial up fequently, especially at what you would consider peak usage times such as weekends and evenings.. YES just when I want to use it.
We keep complaining and they keep saying they know there is a problem but they arnt doing anything it is just getting worse...!!
Is anyone else in the area experiencing the same ????
