Landline & Broadband in Aldinga

    Recommended Posts

    Hi,

    Does anyone know of decent packages for phone & broadband in the Aldinga area.

    The area isn't covered by some Wifi providers (such as Virgin) so I was wondering if anyone has found a reasonable priced package for low user rate (i.e only use phone occassionaly and internet for Emails and a few pics now and again)

    Hi Grandad,

     

    We're with Telstra, they do deals like half price broadband for 12 months on a 2 year plan, we pay about $30 a month for broadband, and $30 ish a month for the phone, to get the deal you have to have your phone with them as well. I think you get some free calls with that deal as well. We had to wait about 10 days for them to set it up as they had to do something with a portal thingy. Also, I've noticed that broadband here is not instant like it is in the UK, not sure why,

     

    If you go into any Telstra shop they can help you,

    Hi Grandad,

     

    Virgin uses the optus network and although their website shows no coverage, in fact we have great coverage with Virgin. As we have Virgin mobiles we bundle wireless 5GB per month for around $35. Pop into Seaford shopping centre and the little man in the kiosk in the middle will be able to sort you out!

    Thanks Andy - by the way, did we meet at Roo's place and the model plane day?

    That was my Andy (I think!) Sounds like things are getting settled for you. Have you moved into your new house yet? We are hoping to be in ours in the next month (hopefully), you will have to pop in for a coffee.

    My Mum who's a pensioner lives at Happy Valley and has been using a bundled package from AAPT for several years. Cost is

     

    Phone and broadband 256k/64 speed 1 gb $34.95

    512k/128k 5 gb $44.95

    1500k/256k 15gb $59.95

     

    It goes up from there but you probably wouldn't need more than that.

     

    She never gets cut off and there are no excess usage charges.

     

    Hope this helps for comparison purposes if you shop around.

    Hi Sue David & kids,

    Sorry if my name caused any stress. Have been looking at Optus wifi. Went to Telstra shop today, and after sitting at desk for 30 minutes with salesman, got totally frustrated when they couldn't get their computer to accept our new address (the house has been there for 2 years as a display home!) in the end they told me to go home and phone Telstra direct.

    If this is their level of service then I wonder what would happen if I had a problem with the line.

     

    Regards,

     

    Bill
