haha Telstra gets sold? Unlikly.

I'm with Bigpond Cable. It's actually 1.19 MB/s to local mirrors :). Now you tell me in this fourm how many people can get that kind of speed for ~ 45 USD per month.

Lol, Telstra isn't being sold... Where did you get that source of information? I think Telstra Wholesale will be sold and not owned by Telstra, but that's not even happening yet I don't think.

As for my cap, yes 10 GB, unfortuante, It's only been non Unlimited as of this month and on, but I'm sure new plans will be released.

Now you see, Telstra cannot bring out amazing plans because the wholesale customers will complain that's it's not fair, and if Telstra do decide to bring out better plans they have to lower wholesale prices aswell, otherwise the ACCC will be onto them for unfair trading, Bigpond can provide good plans for it's customers but obviousely will not lower the prices for wholesale customers because it will cost them too much, this is why the two (Telstra and Telstra Wholesale) should be two differant things, not owned by the one company, Telstra.

Now you see what I mean? :).

that information came from the ministor for education. as for lowering the prices, is bigpond didnt have their own parralell system as for telstra wholesale and bigpond bought their bandwidth for the same price as the other telstra wholesale customers then there is no issue but no, they have to constantly partake in unfair trading. irregardless telstra is dead, ISP"s are putting in their own DSLAMS upto 12mbit, and becoming tier2 (their own international link) so it does not matter, oh btw it wasnt capped this month its been capped for a while, infact the last year, when my friend signed up for cable then.

Lol, Hard cap was introduced in NSW, this month, and a few other states the month before, before that you could download over 80 GB and still be uncapped.

Other ISP's are bringing in their own DSLAM's, yes. But are you able to get onto one like you can a Telstra DSLAM? Nope. Telstra has also announced that it will be upgrading it's DSLAM network to support ADSL2 & ADSL2+ technology.

Still as for Telstra being sold, it's not going to happen... Why would they? :).

actually my isp is due for an upgrade to ADSL2 in the second quarter this year, so ill b among the lucky few i guess. and also telstra have no plans of upgrading their infrastructure at the moment. and what would they cap it at, adsl can go upto 8mbps but they slowed it to 1.5mbps, adsl2 can go upto 12mbps what will they cap it at 4mbps?? that would seem typical. hold australia back.

moderators please keep this thread open, i just want to say 'i told you so' to shaneau when it hits the media later this year about telstra being sold

Well now, I've just proved you wrong in one thing.. ;).

http://www.telstra.com.au/communications/media/mediareleases_article.cfm?ObjectID=33436

"By mid 2005, 200 exchanges covering about 500,000 premises will have ADSL2+ capability at a cost of $60 million. We have budgeted a further $150m in financial year 05/06 for the purchase and installation of ADSL2+ technology and coverage will rapidly increase so that by mid-2006 nearly all ADSL-enabled exchanges will have ADSL2+ capability."

There's news for you.

Your source of information isn't very reliable.

well this answers this question, what is telstra going to cap ADSL2+ at...

"The next generation broadband services and product packages that will take advantage of ADSL2+ speeds of up to 12 Megabits per second are in development

once again tel$tra reeping the rewards. let review tel$tra's stupid decisions

ADSL capable of goin 8mbit, capped @ 1.5mbit

ADSL capable of goin 12mbit, capped @ ??mbit

adsl2+ which is capable of going 24mbit capped @ 12mbit

not to mention all the other BS that goes on behind the scenes i am really amused that you are defending telstra get on http://bc.whilpool.net.au in any forum thread besides bigpond and see how telstra constantly screw people over, look at how they shaft the consumers. i cant wait until we get more companies coming in from overseas, its setup so that a company could come in, set itself up, and grab a HUGE market share by simply offering the speeds and technology that is already available. what about BOPL (broadband over power lines) the tests in australia have indicated that it is capable of delivering 50mbit+ reliably, i cant wait to get onto something like that. and it will not happen whilst telstra is at the reins.

as for the source of my information... i think i trust a minister before i would trust telstra, let alone what they put on their website, i might have perhaps trstued them if they were being investegated atleast ever 6 months for bad business ethics. the ACCC says it all.
