    Many use Telstra, but as with any company they have there critics. Optus is another biggish one, and also iiNet. Google them all and you can compare prices. Beware of some packages having high setup fees, NEVER pay for setup, you can always find someone who will do that for free. Don't pay for a router either.

     

    Its weird as Telstra said we couldn't have ADSL or Cable Internet, yet Optus gave us the choice of both. That's in southern suburbs. It's weird how far behind the UK they are with infrastructure. Although i guess less people and larger distances etc.

    I can recommend iinet. Been with them nearly a year, customer service is great service works well and they do a mobile plan for $10, bargain.

    Hi there, we have Telsta broadband, tv and phone with a t-box (which enables us to record program's, a bit like Sky+ but not quite as good) for about $110 a month. We've never had any problems with them and have moved house (actually, states) while we've been with them and they had us hooked back up in no time. As Ross said, I got them to give us the Router and the set up for free, I got the impression they expect that but will try charge for it if they get the chance! Telsta are the BT of Australia and Optus are their closest competitor.

    We use Adam Internet, naked asdl, 200gb no on peak or off peak per month, no land line we just use a VOIP line generated by Adam, we also buy a phone card as this works out really cheap on calls to the UK. have been with them 2 and a half years no problem

    Be aware that Adam Internet have a couple of people in their service team that do not know the meaning of the word service despite that being part of their job. We've had problems since the off with them and are regretting getting into a 24 month contract but that was my stupid fault.

    sales@adam.com.au

     

    We were paying that with iinet and that was for home phone and internet. We are now paying $75 with TPG and that includes internet home phone and one mobile at $15 per month.

     

    Depends what providers are available at your local exchange.

    I recommend Internode. They have their call centre in Adelaide, and have always been very helpful, if not extraordinarily patient with someone as technologically challenged as me. I think we pay about $75 a month, which includes Voip nodephone and $10 worth calls for adsl and phone.

    If you have VoIP with Adam uk calls are only 1 cent per min. Is a card really cheaper?

    Could it be that you have a Pair Gain phone line and you cant get ADSL we live at Happy Valley and could not get internet through the phone Ended up having an antenna installed (government funded ) as a dongle was useless We now have our internet and home phone with Adam -net is fine phone a bit scratchy though

    Hi

     

    I decided to go with Adam this week and i'm sure they have charged me $100 for a router and setting up / getting a guy to come round etc. I'd rather not pay so maybe I should change my mind or ring them up and threaten to move?

     

    The deal they gave me was 50Gb for $50 with adsl and phone line - calls at 12c - is this a good deal?

     

    Thanks for your input as I really don't have a clue !!!

     

    Cheers Karen
