    Default What Internet provider are you with?

    Hey ladies,
    I'm after some recommendations on Internet providers and deals or bundles. I'm currently with vodafone on a mobile plan (ages to go) and get 3 gb a month. For some reason the past two months I've been going over within 2 weeks even though I don't have Facebook etc so only use the net for news, bubhub and eBay really. Not much you tube or downloads....

    Anyways I would love to get wireless net for the house so we can all connect our phones, download music and movies! We don't have a landline so would we need one too? TPG sounds really good and cheap-unlimited broadband for $69 a month. But the reviews are terrible on line.

    Can anyone recommend a company or deal they have that would work well for us? Thank you

    Internode.

    Great service i havent found any better service than these guys, you really get what you pay for. We are on a $100 a month which includes home phone and 300gb a month. A bit dearer than Telstra but they are awful to deal with

    We're with iiNet. I went to change to TPG at one stage because at the time I couldn't get ADSL2+ with iinet. TPG too my money and then never connected it. 2 weeks later they finally told me that they couldn't connect me and it took me another 2 weeks to get my money refunded. I was not impressed.

    With iiNet you can have naked DSL so you don't have to have a land line or you can get the landline. When you have more than once service you get double your download limit. They have "freezone" so there are a few sites that you can use that don't go toward your download limit. I've never had any major problems with them and when there have been minor problems they're great to talk to.

    Yep we are with internode aswell and theyre great! We pay $60 a month for 150 gb, you can go over that and not be charged just means it slows down until the next billing month. We dont have a phone line and didnt need one to connect the internet. And their customer service has always been amazing
