i reada similiar story in the Heraldsun.com.au newspaper that a company is gonna install a internet pipeline under the Sea http://www.news.com.au/technology/st...014111,00.html
its good that this will drive down prices as fast internet is expensive here currently in australia compared to our counterparts like the US or other countries

I didn't see costs in the links. Are they in another article?

That speed is going to be nice when it comes along. Kiss goodbye to the local video store and having to wait for a TV show.

Anyway, I'm happy with my ADSL2+ right now .... "up to" 24 Mb/s down and 1 Mb/s up for AUD $50/month, although only a 20G volume cap.

Yeah, I used to be on bigpond - it's expensive for what you get, but if your stuck in a Telstra cable area with slow ADSL, you don't get much choice. I'm on iiNet these days.

Not sure about ihug, but they had huge problems when they bought out OzEmail and tried to integrate the networks. Luckily I was in one of the 'unaffected' areas when that schmozzle was going on. Only problem I've had with iiNet was in the early days when they kept throttling the ADSL speed and claiming it was "network congestion". They tried it a few times until I convinced them I knew enough about communications/networks and wasn't going to give up .... now the connection is stable and fast.

when i signed up to iinet, they said i would get a discount of i think $25 for the first month, do you think they billed me $25 less for the first month?.. No,,, it took them 3 months to rectify that matter, then the next biggest problem they haad was during one Christmas i think it was 2003 or 2004? they infact double billed lot of there custers which brought in a Big complaint i think to the ito ( internet telecom onbudsman ) an or to the ACCC which also got published about this complaint in the APC or the PCWorld Magazine, which found they were having bad accountancy problems which i think in the end they sold off there share of ihug isp

a mate of mine where i used to live in melbourne used to do work on iinet's network this was back in 2005 after that he left his job to drive trucks, but now, i wouldn't touch iinet with a barge pole .. soon as i finish my contract with Bigpond im looking at going over to dodo if not an isp in Adelaide ( internode ) or ( Adam internet )

It makes me droll what can be done with such huge speed compared to my 'small' 1Mbps/??? connection. Hardware would be the problem because most devices still use "Fast Ethernet" (up to 100Mbps).

Thanks.
Joe.

the $60/mo. was my old comcast 6 meg/sec. down but they throttle it to aprox. 300kB/sec so the $90/mo. 8meg was a wast of $$$
i like my WowWest $40/ mo 6meg down and aprox 800kB up and the throttle is set by other servers I've been getting about
400-800kB/sec dl speeds

No matter how fast your connection is, if the server you get the content from restricts bandwidth or is just slow, all that bandwidth you're paying for doesn't help you a bit. And the rest is wasted on downloading increased amount Flash, graphics and what not crap on websites.
