My experience with Launtel has been insanely good, but I'd only recommend them to nerds (like myself!) who don't mind doing self setup &...

Easiest way would be to use Google/Apple Pay if the site accepts it (they use virtual card numbers), or PayPal (your card number is never...

For me, coverage seems pretty good (as is expected of Telstra) — although I've noticed that my friends on Voda tend to get better speeds...

If anyone's considering these or the Boses, might also be worth having a look at the recently released Surface Headphones 2. They seem like...

I used to read digital, but social media's conditioned my brain to turn off when reading on a screen... pretty sure that's not just me...

You don't need any kind of modem for FTTC, only a router. The nbn box does all the modem (VDSL) stuff. Some ISPs do use VLAN tagging like...

They say subscription can't be cancelled, but what if you use a prepaid card to sign up? I doubt they'd get debt collectors on me...

Think I was 10 seconds too late - link worked, went through the checkout, it failed, link brought me back to the S20 version. Probably time...

Test your local network speed with something like iperf instead - it helps to remove the variable of nbn/wan speed variations while you're...

Oh and also saving the costco membership if you don't already have one

It might be possible to get a better deal via Vodafone; sign up for the SE plan on month-to-month & immediately cancel, similar to [this...

Also maybe for the purposes of TRS - I believe it needs to be an Aussie tax invoice with an ABN and address
18/04/2020 - 14:31
Worth mentioning that the "nbn boxes" for hfc and fttc are both modems; only fttn requires a user/isp supplied modem

Although it seems like OP is looking for a multi-currency account - I use Up too but you can only hold AUD so you can't transfer balances...

Also note that if you're willing, you can get 2% back on up to $2500/mo spend (so $50) on the HSBC account, which can help offset those FX...

They just don't seem to have marketed themselves that well - I've been using Stake for a couple months now, it's legit. Haven't needed to...

When I took up the JB/S10e deal last year, looks like Telstra paid the remainder of the phone credit, not JB (on the tax invoice) - I don't...
17/03/2020 - 00:50
I've heard of people in the past having success with terminating contracts and just paying the ETC via the JB deals - couldn't find you a...

Sounds too good to be true, but it's what the numbers say :P
16/03/2020 - 20:52
I believe early cancellation on this plan is $390 (as per...

Thanks all, pulled the trigger and so far it seems to be working like a charm. At this point don't really see why you should spend hundreds...

Hey guys, I've been binging a little bit too much ChefSteps in my spare time and have been looking around for a cheap sous vide circulator....

Any idea when Rockdale's last day is?
09/01/2020 - 12:51
The link on the 2nd page you posted auto-applies the coupon code "nebula", which would give you access. If I were to guess, I'd say that...

Anyone know if there's a minimum purchase amt to enter? The T&Cs don't actually define a "qualifying purchase".

Duff beer is brewed from hops, barley, and sparkling clear mountain... what?
