Australian Wirleless Internet
I thought some of Aussies on here might be interested in the new wireless internet offerings due to be offered by Exetel soon. They are my ADSL ISP and are currently testing HSPA services witrh the view to rolling out at the end of September using Optus wholesale.
It's a pay for what you use system, were you pay $5 service fee each month and 1.5c/mb upto 1gb and 2.5c/mb thereafter. Once you pay the setup fee ($195.00 including hspa modem or $25.00 for the sim BYO modem) you can end up with a very cheap wireless internet services.
It works out out be:
No usage - $5/month
50mb - $5.75/month
150mb - $7.25/month
333mb - $10/month
Pretty cheap really considering you're not going to download more than a few mbs each day usually and at least you're in control of what you spend unllike the data block offerings of the other wireless ISP's.
I'm not affiliated with Exetel at all, I'm just glad to see some reasonable pricing starting to come through!
