Hi to all the Tweakers out there.
Just reciently Tel$tra have decided to raise the price on Broadband connection to the Internet. This I have found to be a rather un-fair hike especally for those on the ADSL plans who have had to endure alot recently, from changing AUP's to weeks of downtime and how price rises
Here i have added a snip of what I sent off the the Telstra Team and I ask that if any other Telstra ADSL and Cable subscribers out there read this they register their complaints to.
"Dear Telstra Bigpond ADSL Team
About 3-4 days ago I was watching channel 9 news and to my horror I was told
that Telstra was going to increase pricing on Broadband connections to the
As a concerned customer I proceded to check the Telstra Bigpond Broadband
ADSL pricing situation and behold I find there to be a price hike on March
Now since i have recieved the Telstra Bigpond ADSL service in June 2001 I
have had to endure a change from the original AUP to the new AUP reducing my
downloads to 3GB per month. While I found this partly acceptable I have also
had to endure constand Downtimes with the service, Including one that forced
me offline for upto a full week.
While Telstra did compensate for this I find that increasing the price on an
already unstable service does push the limit of mine and quite a few others
I would like to understand Telstra's claim that this will generate more
interest in Broadband when the price is only going up"
I will be setting up a thread in the Forums for the members to discuss this issue in more detail. Please feel free to register your opinions there.
