I'm with you. I had an optus contract but you just have to pay the disconnection if they can't provide you at your next address don't they? I moved into Berwick in a new estate and apparently lines were not laid! I can't even get ADSL. I had to go on dial up and submitted an application every 4 days and waited 3 months before I got the slow broadband. That's the best this area can provide. Yeah, good one Rudd!
Dial up? that exists still? Shame on local / state / national government(s).
I agree 150% with your Lynsey -> it's should be as fundamental as water, electricity, sewerage and roads/paths. Electricity/phone should also all be underground. Fiber to the home. To get an entire estate establish -> assuming it's 'new' shouldn't cost that much extra. It should be legislation.
yeah, dial up is still out there for those poor souls that have limited access to the 21st century, like me. You try paying a bill when you are running on 50.2 Kbps!! I've been timed out on occassion because the page takes so long to download.
The dial up modems aren't cheap either. I had to pay $80
Yike Dialup.. its OK for back up when you blow your broadband allowance but not for relying on 100% of the time! Well Ive moved in and unfortunately for me I couldnt get a good reception on the optus mobile network from my house tried everything but alas I had to bite the bullet and leave Optus for Telstra... Glad Im not alone in my way of thinking of putting the broadband in when everything else goes in. Dont have to be a rocket scientist to work it out..
Has the broadband been updated or is it still a disaster
