Zippy's Daily Suggestions!
« on: January 28, 2009, 08:22:42 AM »
If telstra bigpond is your internet service provider, change to another provider like Internode or Adam like NOW.

Reason:  If you have any problem with your service, dont bother trying to get it fixed, it wont get fixed if its a problem on bigponds end.

Zippy's thoughts: Bigpond is full of algae.

yes my group gets a good deal from chariot, have had it with them for several years now.  It's Internode the safecom IT people are installing in level 3 bases.  Internode are good, I use them at home, I just wonder why groups that get the safecom provided Internode connection are being charged around twice the rate we pay to chariot.

Best to check the plans first before comparing prices, I suspect Internode may be supplying a higher speed plan or a business plan with a service level agreement (SLA) where the Chariot plans are normally just domestic types with no supply guarantee and only "best effort".
