So I'm interested in why all the juggling? What is the monthly spend after all the effort? $35 a month gets me 40 GB and unlimited calls...

You've checked the meter reading matches now. However was the previous reading an estimate perhaps? Also easiest way to check for...

The lack of data pooling kills it for me with Telstra. Points though for them not charging excess usage fees on most mobile plans now...

Interesting the TIO are aware enough to shut it down. Fair enough too I suppose, given you're essentially just wanting to go back on your...

You can but ask. I've heard tales of nice customer service agents helping brand new members out.

I was able to with four months left. But I think Optus may only allow that of you're moving to a higher $ plan

I had 4 months left on a 12 month plan and they had no issues. I went from$36 to $40 though. Are you moving in the opposite $ direction?

Every telco now uses the exact same network. NBNs. That's one of the main reasons the NBN was built.
17/04/2019 - 07:05
You can easily insist ABB arrange for an NBN technician to come out and inspect your line. If the issue is found to be your...

I think this is a genuine Telstra rethink. They've already made several huge changes to start treating the customer as something to be...

What the op doesn't understand here is he now has a choice. What he can't choose is when Optus terminate his service. He has the months....

Optus cable has the only exemption. They can shut down there service any time they want. They've decided it is 3 months after NBN arrives...

These lease plans are such bad value for money. Customer assumes all risk, must replace phone if list or damaged. $15 monthly insurance a...

It only does 4k when the content provided is 4k. IE Netflix. No upscaling

Important. Any existing fetch packages from your ISP won't work with these boxes. Note all ISPS only lease fetch boxes, you never own them....

Manufacture and retail warranty are just voluntary offerings to improve sales. They may be the same or one better than the other. Generally...

Be aware Optus is now often enforcing the time period on discounts. In the past when 12 months is up plans used to just roll into the same...

Price protection is something companies add voluntarily to a deal. If it's not mentioned there's no legal basis for why you should get it....

I've found jbhifi excellent fit returns. They are happy to exchange or refund. They also have a record of the sale so no need for a...

This does seem to be a new Optus approach. Before now deals just reverted to exactly the same but month to month. More often now deals are...

Sorry to say office works are selling them for$900 (with a bonus Chromecast) You mentioned 'change of mind'? No warranty covers this.

It won't be much different. For mobiles 5g will involve costly handset and have sporadic 5g reception. Most don't need more than 100gb on a...
14/01/2019 - 08:53
That's why Optus are going big on data and offers right now. Lock in customers until Optus is able to provide a 5g service

Not much point in fixed for the short term IMO. Rates more likely to stay where they are our even drop a little as the housing bubble is...

Yes. It's free. Likely not a true offset account just a internal accounting split on the loan. This isn't unusual but the downside is if...

That's standard fine print for any loan and comparison rate. Fwiw The fine print states 'may' not 'will'. There's nothing in the fees etc....
30/12/2018 - 09:11
Looks pretty good. Free offset. Unlimited redraw. Split available. Low rate. If you're borrowing under$250,000 seems there's some fees. If...

I know he says so on the opening post. Not sure why every one keeps trying to clarify' that? That's why I mentioned it. As for relevance,...

It's uncapped but also no promises of what speed you will likely get. Could be 100, could be 20. Peter Gillespie
