If you can get naked then iiNet. I had it before and it was awesome, unfortunately at new house wasn't able to get it so ended up with BigPond (who actually aren't that bad).

Happy with TPG Unlimited for 60 a month. Its a real benefit not having the cap in the back of your mind whenver you go to download something.

I miss cable but unavailable here :-(

Still got the Karalee place mate moved into this one as it's 20 minutes from work as opposed to an hour.
My mums living in the Karalee place.

Every time I go back to Telstra they find some way to make life difficult so not going back there.

I'm gonna ring Iinet now haven't been with them for 5 years.

You're going to be unhappy, because Telstra are the only company with their gear in Park Ridge exchange.

The main problem I can see is... You can't buy Naked ADSL2+ from Telstra and I don't think they Resell ADSL2+ without a full service phone connection.

Internode Resell Telstra ADSL2+ with their Easy Reach product. You need to have full service home phone, either with Internode or with someone else... I will give the prices that include home phone via Internode.

15GB = $70
60GB = $80
150GB = $100
300GB = $120

Yeah Telstra are nothing but f***wits. I thought TPG's customer service was bad, then I got Telstra. F*****g hell! I made 5 complaints in my first 2 weeks. Everything they tell you is a lie. In one phone call you can get three completely different made-up stories. I've had their ADSL for 2 months, and if I log in to the bigpond site it still says "Your order will be ready in October" or some s***, no usage stats, absolutely nothing.
So pathetic, but they have the monopoly in the area where I live. Everyone must have telstra, for EVERYTHING, home phone, internet, mobile, f*****g everything. As to whether they provide any service or bother hooking your s*** up depends what mood the angsty 16 year old surfer f***wit that answers the phones is in. Surely there is something horribly illegal about this.

I'd have to disagree - my experience with Bigpond has been awesome. I've had my line investigated and fixed (was in my house too, previous owners rigged up some spaghetti of connectoins - wasn't charged to get this fixed) because of a low sync, quotes reset after a miscalculation of ISO downloads, brilliant uptime (once line was fixed), etc.

I live at Park Ridge South and am with Dodo unlimited ADSL2+ for $69. Cable length is 1.8km from the exchange and I get
11Mbps(1.3MB/s) download and 0.8Mbps(100KB/s) upload. That is the maximum Attainable Line Rate out here in the sticks
on my Telstra phone line.

I have never had a problem with Dodo either.

Park ridge has some of the worst phone lines around. Everytime it rains expect problems. I put this down to most houses out there are a fair distance from the road. No cable out there either.

Thanks guys,

I found Spintel with similar pricing to Dodo but if you're happy with Dodo I'll signup with them :)
