  • Naked DSL opinions

    I've got everything bundled with Telstra right now but they suxor the big one!!!11!one!! The saving I get by bundling isn't worth squat on the monthly line rental. Personally, Telstra has been great as an internet service, it's just that they charge way, WAY too much.

    I don't use the home phone except to carry the ADSL so I want to junk it as it's a waste of $25/month or whatever I'm being charged. I'm a fan of clicking and getting my page to load instantly, too, so high speed is a must.

    I checked this site out; Broadband Guide ? Compare Broadband Internet plans, ADSL, ADSL2+, Cable & Wireless. and then browsed Dodo's plans and Optus' plans. Not too shabby.
    I also looked up iiNet. Pretty sweet, too.
    It appears as though Westnet don't do naked DSL. (fixed, Desmo, cheers)

    So who's got naked DSL, who with and what do you think of them?

    Thanks

    Westnet most certainly do do ADSL, just not naked.
    Don't use Optarse, they have an abysmal service, not heard much about Dodo.
    Personally I'm a westnet customer. Great customer service, if a little bit exxy.

        I think you can go down to $19/month for telstra line rental. And as far as I can remember, naked dsl wasn't much better value than normal adsl + line rental.

        It's also nice to have a landline just in case. But yeah, telstra bigpond is a fkn rip off.

          Go Amcom, afaik they're the only naked dsl providers that don't count uploads to your quota. Keep this in mind!

            Currently with westnet and getting great service - i am currently looking at moving over to TPG as they offer twice the bandwidth @faster speed and the same price.

                Naked vs non naked iinet.... i hear naked charge you for uploads?


                I've got non-naked 80/40 quota iinet (or 80/80, i forget...)... no issue with it, no real desire to go to naked and get charged for upload...

                    yes, with naked your upload counts towards your quota.
                    ie, no good for seeding torrents.

                        I'm very happy with every aspect of iinet.

                          yeah but you weigh that up against the fact that you save at least $30 per month by not paying any line rental. Just depends on your personal use.

                            TPG looks OK but not planned on the Scarborough exchange until Dec this year. Upload is not includedin the plan by them. They look pretty good for pricing.

                              I have naked at four sites. Wouldn't do anything else unless I have to. Signed my neighbour up and they now save over $200 a month. You get that with teenage daughters and long distance relationships!

                              Seriously though, with the Bigpond (cable) account, Line rental, phone charges etc, they couldn't be happier.

                              My naked ends this week, and I'm not happy Jan!
