      as much as im against bigpond and optusnet... they work out bloody cheap if they also have your house phone line etc, hooked up the folks and my aunty on them, works out next to bothing a month and more than they would use... So it's definalty a easy upgrade just watch the download limits.

            You get what you pay for ... with Bigpond "next to nothing" payment plans... you get:
            Next to nothing download limit.
            Next to nothing from the customer service department.
            Next to nothing in terms of any other reason to join.



            Still find Westnet and iinet... are the two main rivals in terms of price and quality of service. (I'm with westnet and very happy)

            and then maybe arachnet and TGP.... depending on your typical usage... ie high volume overnight P2P or high speed occasional web browsing.

            as ferris said, the whirlppol forum is the place to look

                I was simply suggesting something that was an easy step up in terms of price, otherwise you cna go all out.

                Perthinternet used to have unlimited data accounts but was brought out by amcom so unsure if they still supply them.

                Personally i pay over a hunfred a month for my DSL but i find it well worth it...

                      Westnet for shizzle (ok maybe Im a little bias though)

                      Come on support us PSB'ers who work there

                      Seriously though our track record for service and reliability is pretty damn good, we tend to look after our customer base really well.

                      Amnet would probably be my second choice if they have a DSLAM in your area and can take advantage of an 8Mb connection.

                        id highly recommend NOT switching to optus for the following reasons:

                        If you switch to an optus phone line, depending on your area, your voice line may be switched to a dedicated Optus line. Once on an optus hardware your choice of ADSL will be from the following company:

                        Optus

                        Currently no other isp i know of can wholesale from optus equipment. The solution of course is to churn your voice provider back to something other than optus (telstra/iprimus etc).

                        If you get grumpy at optus or find a better deal elsewhere, it will be a hassle to change providers (at least while noone is wholesaling off their equipment).

                          I'm with tpg, and could not fault thier service or product. costs me about $50 a month iirc for 10gb on and off, 1.5mb. only had 2 service outages in a year. have a problem, and when you call customer service you speak to someone almost straight away (in contrast to my old service with iinet, which was constantly down, and you sometimes had to wait 45 mins on hold to speak to someone)
                          sure I'd like to have more speed and a higher download limit, but the service would almost make me stay with tpg anyway....
                          No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation to detail.

                            I can vouch for that

                            It's just the Telstra Tech's in the field that cause me most grief!
