    Welcome to broad band hell... The prices are bad and the download limit sucks (In brisbane anyway). Where are you moving?

    amen to that nucleuz - you in brisbane too??

    yea, everything's pretty screwed here as far as broadband goes, I guess overall Optus would still be the best, though it's been capped to 3gig and you DO pay for that 3gig.

    get something other than the major ones
    telstra/optus/ozemail is such ripoff when you compare them to smaller companies

    Telstra sucks, I used them and the service was ok, a little slow and expensive but that seems to be par for the course down under, the thing that Telstra did to really make me hate them was constantly trying to overbill me, they suck as a company, their organisation is horrible, they don't know their ass from their elbows.

    optus might be your only choice in many places, other than telstra.

    so far the broadband services in australia is still targeted at big companies or those rich peepz... even in NZ they still got better service and it's like the edge of the world there...
