I think for cable Internet, Optus has its own infrastructure.

We used to have them for phone and they weren't bad. Internet, however? Fucking useless, and a total ripoff. I honestly don't know why anybody in this country would use Telstra or Optus for Internet when they could go with Internode or iiNet.

I know!, their plans are so CRAP!

At home, we're with a local company. I can download @ 2MB Upload @ 256k......we have a 60GB download limit....and our downloads ratio has to be 1:4mb.....cost?....$89!

You mention this plan to Telstra, and it probably doesn't exist!

Now that's pretty sweet by our standards. Some of the small, local ISPs can be really great.

I keep meaning to look into Internode's ADSL2+ though. I need more speed.

Which is a third of the year. Plus half of the semester too.

Awesome! Good luck with the application.

It's mostly a pain in the arse if you live by yourself since you'd have no one else to let mind the repairman and all. And I'm totally sure that your employer will let you off for a day to wait on a repairman.
