Switching internet service provider
I am in the process of switching my ISP from iPrimus to Exetel. This means that I will not be blogging for about a week, if all works well. I have been paying iPrimus close to $90 per month for my bundled landline phone plus ADSL2+ internet service ($30 + $60). Now for the same quota of downloads, I will be paying $35 to Exetel for internet, and $21 to Telstra for the landline. Huge savings! I love it when I find a way to get back at the ISP's, in this case iPrimus, for charging too much. Australians pay too much for all forms of telecommunications, be it internet, landline, or mobile phone. I can only say this must be due to poor government regulatory policies.
