Arrrg I hate it when I go over my download limit, everything takes so long to load. Is there a download link for this video? That would be much easier.

I pay $50 a month for a 256k ADSL connection with a download limit of 10GB, if I go over that Iím slowed to 64k. If I go over 20GB I get charged 15c for ever MB over. Basically Iím getting screwed.

Darned right you're getting screwed!

I don't know if TPG is just an Adelaide thing, but we get $50 256k connection with a 20gb download limit, which if exceeded becomes 56k (no fees if we go way over).

My dad for some unknown reason signed us up with Telstra. I wanted to go with iPrimus or Optus.

With iPrimus we would have got connection a bit cheaper not sure about download limits but I donít think there was one, and a free 512 modem.

With Optus we would have got 512 modem for free with a self install (Which I could have done, and did do with our current 256 modem). 12GB download limit between 9am and midnight, and 36GB download limit between midnight and 9am. Then slowed to 56k or something if you go over that but no extra charges.

My dad could at least bundle our home phone his mobile and the internet together so we could get a discount. If we had of gone with Optus we could have done the same thing with my mobile if we changed our home phone to Optus who offered us cheaper rates then what we currently pay to do so.

So yeah Iím getting screwed hard by Telstra and itís pretty much all thanks to my dad. Meh Iíll be moving out within a year (Most likely), so Iíll just deal with it for now.

Gee, I guess I'm not feeling so bad, I'm on Comcast Cable and I have a 6Mb d/l with 384Kb u/l speed and no bandwidth limiting and I get a discount due to the fact I have both Digital Cable and Internet in a package deal Laughing

Donít get me wrong itís fine when Iím not over my download limit, infact the speed is quite reasonable. Only problem is I download a lot. With music, movies, games and all the flash animations I watch we average about 1GB a day, so come the 11th of each month Iím over the limit Laughing.

You all are lucky compared to me. I have a crappy modem that won't get over 52k, and a bill that just went from a simple $11.89 a month to $21.95 (plus tax) I'm screwed big time. Any good dial-up acclerators out there?

Hey thatís nothing man, my old connection was a 56K that wouldnít go over 36k, it had an average download speed of 1-2kb. When I was really lucky it might go up to 5, but not all that often. Not to mention the company I was with on several occasions changed my dial up bnumber on me without telling me and theyíre really had to contact via phone so it would take me weeks to find out my new number to get my connection back. And I was getting charged something like $25 and I was meant to have a limit of 40 hours but they never enforced it.
