Onward and upward to iinet.
For the last few months, I’ve been bashing my head against the 10GB Unlimited limit on Telstra (the one where they give you 64K shaped after 10 gig, but “shaped” means “in 26K for a second then nothing for four” chunks), so I’m moving to iinet. I’m hoping a DSL2 upgrade happens reasonably soon too, but if not, I can live with 1500/256 for a while, with a greater data allowance.
I’ve been with Bigpond Cable since 1998-9 (with a 1 year gap in 2000), and it’s been an up-and-down experience. I’m keeping the cable connection for a month while I try out the DSL, and if all goes well, I’m outta here. Possibly to return if my phone line sucks (which is a very real possibility).
