    Default Internet plans... Help

    Hi,
    At the moment we just have pre paid Internet with a stick thing to shove in the side of the computer.

    We are looking at getting wireless Internet on a plan instead.
    We don't want a home phone though. We have no use and no need for the extra bills when our mobiles r more than enough usage time for us.

    Does anyone know what this sort of Internet is called?
    I have googled but I am not having much luck.

    tia

    Default This can help

    I recently got a new internet service provider and found the questionnaire thing on whirlpool a great help in finding out what was available out there. http://bc.whirlpool.net.au/
    You tell it what you are looking for and then it lists a whole heap of providers and their prices. When I used it, I kept that page open whilst I google the various providers that looked like they might be best for me. I had no idea there were so many choices and variances in prices until I used the tool. We ended up getting unlimited broadband at a reasonable price and the service is pretty darn good. Slows down in the evenings sometimes, but the unlimited side of the service makes up for it as I download tv shows and podcasts at night when I go to bed, and they are there for me the next day.

    Naked DSL is a modem yes. You don't need a home phone but you need a phone line. The modem plugs into the phone line and then.wirelessly connects to your devices (computer smart phone etc). No phone bill just internet bill.
