  1. G'day all,
    Currently on Optus Dialup $21.45.its ok...'want Optus B/band $29.99
    but I'm (apparently) 4.33 klm from the exchange.limit is 4.3klm
    FKN B/SHIT OR WHAT :evil: ...only house in our suburb that cant get it...
    What do I do?Any thoughts..ISDN dish is $35 for 12mths,then $94. F...k OFF :evil:

  2. www.whirlpool.net.au

    have a crack at some other ISPs and have a look at cable aswell.

    $20 for dialup is a ripoff, change regardless of whether BB is in your sights...
  3. That isnt too far any more, as he^ said see the whirlpool recent news for items on the extension of this distance from the exchange before they say you cant have it
  4. You could try just give them the phone number of another house that is within the 4.3km, so it gets past their service qualification ;) In all likelyhood, it will work fine, they just have their rules. I think I'm closer to 6kms from the exchange and mine's fine. You could also try talk to someone up higher and say you want to try anyway, if the noise levels are a little too high they can always try lower the speed of the connection?
