          prob be call "f..k yeah" I'm guessing

      • Yep, I was just thinking I'll switch to the gigabit plan but I couldn't see it. Thanks for clarifying.

    Don't forget to click through TopCashback for an extra $25.

    If you stay for the full 6 month promotional period, that's an extra $4.17 per month.

    I was on Mate for over 3 years, but got sick of the massive speed fluctuations. Ended up moving to Exetel and I'm extremely happy with the service.

    I had also referred 6 people (family and friends) to mate. They had a similar experience so wasnt hard to convince them to move to Exetel with me.

    As tight as I am, I don't think I'd go back to these guys. Speeds were horrendous.
    Regular outages too.
    They would be $10 cheaper than my current deal but tangerine are super reliable

      Tangerine were horrendous for me

    Mate stores your passwords using reversible encryption. Would not recommend.

    • +1

      How do you know this… Please don't Hack me

      • +3

        Their forgot password link sends you your password. So it's either reversible encryption, or they store it in plaintext. Their privacy policy states that they store encrypted passwords - hence I concluded reversible encryption.

        • wow thats fked. Which other company does this?

          • @Homr: Lombard finance (now changed their name to something else that I don't remember).

            They read me my password on the phone once!

          What's a secret between mates…

          Their forgot password link sends you your password.

          Can confirm.

          I logged in as you and it shows the password: Aleigh456

  • Are they good now
    It was good as Aussie then went downhill.
    That is when i moved away

    Billing Starts when you SignUp, Not at Activation, Whyy ?????

  • Thanks man i am coming to the end of my current promotional discount with Spintel so will be moving to another "new user" promo rate for 6 months soon, this seems to fit the bill.

    • +1

      I plan to hop between ISPs at some point. When are you considered a new user after leaving them?

      • +1

        need to know that too. Hopefully rep @rfc850 can confirm.

        • You would be classified as a new customer if you haven't had active nbn service with MATE in the last six months.

          • @rfc850: @rfc850Interesting above link for t&c says this "Never".
            nbn New Service means a nbn Service that we supply to you at a Service Address (see Mate Customer Terms for definition) at which we have never previously supplied a nbn Service to you.

      • Yeah i dont know. I was on the More deal with 30-40% off for Commbank for a year and then moved to Spintel and now looking for a new one, i havent cycled around again so i dont know if you can re-join and be a "new" customer or not.

        • +1

          from t&c appears anyone who had service with them in past are not considered as "new nbn service".

    Not interested in a business supporting the racist, Kerr.

    Worst nbn provider I’ve ever been with

  • rep @rfc850, currently not with mate, We used to have mate connection abt 7-8 months back using the same promo code (surprisingly). Offer available to us?

    • Yes. You would be classified as a new customer if you haven't had active nbn service with MATE in the last six months.

    I don't like this

    1. Month-to-month, casual or ‘no contract’ terms
      If a Plan or Contract is described as ‘month-to-month’, ‘casual’, ‘no contract’ or similar:
      a) we may terminate it on at least 30 days’ notice; and
      b) you may terminate it on at least 30 days’ notice, taking effect at the end of a Billing
      Period (e.g. if you give notice on 26 March, your Contract ends on 30 April next).
  • Just switched with them last month and loving it so far. Switch was seem less and speeds are consistent with the plan (even in peak hours).

  • Thanks OP signed up, my 6 monthly hop was coming to an end.

  • I tried mate 2 yrs ago and they did some heavy throttling of international sites, is this still an issue?

    e.g. I could download fast from steam, microsoft etc but some random site with a fast server was getting 100KB/s or less.

  • +2

    Mate Telecom "Ripper NBN 50/20" is tempting for $55 p/m ($20 discount for 6months) but the feedback/experience is putting me off with not signing.

    Any more experince, please?

  • Limited knowledge to NBN… I would like to ask why different providers would affect the speed. Don't they all use the same NBN infrastructure?

  • Also thinking to switch to other providers since my superloop deal has finished. Never use Mate before, are they good?

  • Thanks we just signed up for Wireless NBN here in Griffith NSW. Cheers

  • new customers only or old customer that left them before aswell?
