I was pretty disappointed by the way moving house is handled. I
assume there's some sort of fee Netspace have to pay Telstra for the
reconnection - but it's probably not as much as what Netspace require.
Basically I was a 1 1/2 months off finishing a 12 month contract, when we
ended up moving house. To get ADSL connected at the new place, it's a
$100 reconnection fee, and an extra 6 months on your contract. I want
to move to Melbourne at the end of the year, so I'm basically forced
to write off the the rest of the contract. Annoying.
