Wow.. That's pretty expensive.
I hope you get your connection up ASAP!!!!
I miss tmnut stimx. Unlimited access FTW! I don't care if it's throttled during daytime and slows down bittorent
Phone line should be coming in about one week and a half according to Telstra, if all goes well...
FYI, TMnut now offers 4 Mbps for RM 160 (US$44) plus free phone line rental. But I have no idea if the 4 Mbps connection is for real, or just to the junction box.
It's probably the latter
Just received a message from Telstra:
Naked ADSL2+ Broadband No More Line Rental 50 GB $59.99
I decided to go with the 150GB plan on a 6 month contract
Something to read if you are wondering why Aussieland has teh evil bandwidth cap: The Reason Australia Lacks Unlimited Internet Plans - MacTalk Forums
Oooh, that's pretty good! I hope you enjoy the internet connection!
Anyway, you are in Perth, or on the eastern side of Australia?
I will probably need a new HDD as soon as I start leeching with the internet connection LOL
Adelaide, South Australia
Not been there before, but I guess that must be a nice cool place!
I been to Brisbane only once, and I love it there! Want to go there again!
It's getting colder here recently too bad my desktop is in Malaysia
I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to routers Please help
They should use WiMAX for their backbones in Aussieland if distance is the problem.
Phone line was just activated minutes ago! Applied for an ADSL2+ connection straight away
If all goes well, it will take about 7 to 10 working days before I can start leeching again
EDIT: DAMN! Service number not on ISP's database yet! [email protected]^#^!#%(
All I can say is;
Welcome to Australia
7-10 working days is just quick! One week of study and coffee will just kill a lot of time!
At least, it's better than 20-30 days, which in my Streamyx application case, which is uh... back in 2005!
Oops no ADSL2+ at my place LOL!
Trying ADSL now.
What's the difference? Speed?
Less speed and download quota at the same price. ADSL1 is actually more expensive than ADSL2+ here They said my phone line is connected to pair gain system so no ADSL2+.
I applied for ADSL last Friday, now waiting for them to activate. Hopefully by the end of this week.
i can haz adsl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111
Even at max operating directionality and power, WIMAX can't touch the distances between Aussie cities lol. Here's a list of distances.
Toowoomba to Gold Coast (where i work), 200 KM
Brisbane to Sydney, 1200 KM
Brisbane to Cairns, 1600 KM
Sydney to Melbourne, 1000 KM
Sydney to Canberra, 300 KM
Melbourne to Adelaide, 750 KM
and so on.
Geological dispersion is serious bizness here. I also hit a ****ton of animals on my long drive from Toowoomba to Sydney lol.
WiMAX would work for cities and their metropolitan areas I guess (they are still trying to do that slowly here - though some cities like Seattle already have free WiFi zones) though not so much city to city.
