Bigpond are currently phoning Optusnet customers in my area,
offering `the same deal as OPTUS but 20% cheaper' (according to the
phone guy). Has anyone else taken this up? Is it true?
The standard deal with Bigpond is worse than Telstra: their
`unlimited' amount is 10G not 12, and there's no 24G bonus on off-peak
time. I've heard that they even charge for upstream traffic, unlike
So what's the story? I'm very tempted if it's true.
