    Hi Everyone

     

    Looking to move to Flagstaff Hill soon and looking to possibly change our internet and phone from Bigpond (Liberty 12GB) and Telstra home phone.

     

    We dont have any issues with these providers (apart from when we move), but would like to either go wireless or change supplier for a cheaper option.

     

    We would just forget the phone, but I need to phone UK as my Dad and sister are not computer minded and dont fancy using mobile.

     

    Could you let me know which provider you use and how good the supplier or pm me with any other comments/ones to avoid.

     

    Thank you

     

    Sandra

    Hiya we have wireless home phone from optus (doesn't need a phone line) it costs $29 a month rental, calls to national 16c+GST(total call/NOTper minute), and we use a phone card (day &night) for phoning overseas and mobile wireless internet 5GB $29 a month too, mind you that's a bundled price....works well for us. Cheers Fiona

     

    p.s the main reason we chose these services is that you can move with your service intact and just notify of a change of address for the bill, no waiting for migrating your number, getting line switched on etc. Just plug into electricity point and hey presto, that and it's cheaper too

    its ok saying what you use, but is it any good? Ive heard so many bad things about teletra and virgin!

     

    We're on virgin wireless and its fine - BUT I think it depends on where you live. We live quite high up in Woodcroft and our signal is fine - but my friend who lives lower down has had real problems with her phone - but the computer is fine!:realmad:

    Live in Flagstaff Hill and can't fault Adam Internet and just received the following email from them.

     

    Adam effectively doubles all Residential ADSL quotas for freeAdam Internet is proud to announce the introduction of Off-Peak and Unmetered data for all Residential ADSL accounts. This new change has effectively doubled the current download quota of all plans and provides access to a wide range of unmetered content at no extra charge.

     

    New "Peak" and "Off-Peak" quotas have replaced the current "External Download" quotas of all Adam Residential ADSL plans. The Peak quota counts all data downloaded from the hours of 8 am to midnight and the Off-Peak quota counts all data downloaded from the hours of midnight to 8 am.

     

    For example, if you are currently on the AdamDirect Light account which has a monthly quota of 5 GB, you now receive 5 GB to use during Peak times and an additional 5 GB to use during Off-Peak. In this example you can now effectively download 10 GB from anywhere which doubles the value of all residential broadband accounts, while providing the same reliability, service and value for money at no additional cost.

     

    In addition to this bonus, we have introduced unmetered download traffic that replaces the current "Local" quota. Adam now provides a selection of resources where all usage is excluded from your monthly download quota. As at 19th of May 2009, these include Adam Internet's FileArena, GamingSA (including GamingSA's Steam content server), TiVo (software updates, EPG and Blockbuster movies), Fresh FM Radio Stream, KG and the General Live Video Stream, ABC iView & Games.On.Net. Unmetered data is not counted towards the Peak or Off-Peak data quotas and may be considered free of charge. At the time of launch, the upload quota on all accounts has remained unchanged.

    Hi. We've got our home phone and internet with Dodo. No problems and fast connection. Basic phone deal was $29.99 and internet is ADSL2+ $29.99 for 105gb, the 5gb is on peak.

    So, in total $59.89 per month all in.

    They also have good deals on calling UK, think it's $1.95 for a 30 min call.

    Hope that helps.
