Hi to all, was just reading today that hellstra have taken the hint and all existing customers and new customers with $99 dollar account are now all unlimited data .
This is a major win for the consumer, looks like the recent heat about the NBN and generally s*** speed have prompted a small step in the right direction.
About f***en time !! Rejoice
unlimited data means s*** when my down speed is ~300kb max and unstable.
F*****g liberals and their mixed technology.
YES I'm still bitter.
my account now says unlimited. sweet!
I'm not even on NBN but Telstra have over sold the s*** out of my ADSL port so I barely get 10% of what I should be getting during peak hours so their unlimited plans can straight get f***ed.
At night I barely manage 2Mbps and during the day on the weekend it's a constant 5-6Mbps.
A lot of people are having problems with Telstra over-selling ports. You used to pay more for Telstra but at least you got the speed you paid for, now you just pay more. Being on a Telstra monopolized exchange f*****g sucks.
does it get any better?
Ugh deadlyf that would be frustrating
yeah Spook, during the day I can get near full 20Mbps at times but peak hours are basically constantly between 2-3 Mbps.
Goes to s*** at around 5pm and doesn't pick back up again until 10.30pm or so. Basically peak Netflix hours.
i dont even use my 500gb, i cant download enough
I'm at LAX right now and can't believe the pitiful data allowances you get over here in the US. Considering the criticism Australian internet gets, I can't say it's remotely justified. I get something like 12gb on Telstra for $70/mo. I paid nearly aud100 for 6gb on AT&T.
i got 10g on a prepaid in bali for $40 aus
Not sure how I feel about it as a telstra customer on nbn 100/40. all the torrenters will be out in force clogging the network without limitation.
don't even use my 2TB/month, not sure what i'll do with unlimited. used 1.4TB last month. That's with the kids leaving HD Youtube and netflix running all day and night when they don't stop streaming to the externally powered chromecasts.
At least netflix stops and asks you eventually.
