Comments:
Why I hate Telstra (one of the many, many, many reasons).
If I was to sign up with Pig Bond - Telstra’s most luxurious plan, I’d be up for about $35 per month with a 450 Meg D/L Limit and 20c per meg after that – just for starters.

Now if I was to sign up with useOz.com (which I have), on their 12 months for $199 with 6 months extra for free, and I was to say D/L on a good day, 80 Meg, per day every day for an entire month, it would have cost me about $8 per month ISP charges, and $6 in local calls for 2400 meg of down load.

However if I had of been with Telstra and it’s skumbag rip off rates, I would have paid $35 for ISP charges, $6 in local calls, and after burning up Telstras pathetic measly money grabbing 450 Meg D/L limit, it would cost me an additional $390 for the remaining 1950 Megs.

I am not being getting paid to plug useOz.com, but comparing an 80 meg down load per session, 4 hours per day for 30 days with useOz.com coming to about $14, compared to Telstras skumbag bare faced rip off coming to about $431...

If this is one of the ways I can big time publically spit in Telstras face, then I will do it.

Not only has Telstra permanently lost all customer loyalty here (a long long time ago actually), they have also made a total and unreserved enemy for life in me. And while I am on this tack, for the Telstra haters, go check out TelstraExposed.com. At the very least you will find out you are not the only one and you will find out why.
