[clug] Query re Transact costs.

We found it cheaper to move to a 1.5Mb ADSL with 60Gb /month for $175(with
Free Static IP) from Powerband, than to keep the 1Mb Transact connection
with 5Gb per month from
Netspeed.($89.95(transact)+99.95(Netspeed)+$10(static IP)).

Just be wary to read the terms and conditions very closely from the Transact
ISP's. We got stung badly from our previous ISP by disconnecting our plan
after we had connected to it earlier this month. They have a T&C clause that
states they will not refund part months, leaving us $110 out of pocket for 4
days access.

Oh, and on that note, if Anyone wants/needs downloads/images/etc, let me
know off list, we still have 40Gb of quota on the 1.5Mb and 14Gb of Quota on
the 512k (despite our best efforts).

Hi all.

I'm starting to look at ADSL, and want to get clarification re Transact.

Am I right in thinking that if, for example, I sign up with Velocity, I
would be paying Transact their (say) $39.95 per month (current offer),
and on top of that, paying Velocity (say) $34.95 per month for 2GB.
Thus, I would be paying 74.95/month for 2GB broadband, telephone line
rental, free local calls and "great long distance rates"?
