We're with Telstra

I'm running out of time for another post today so here is an update on the photo dilemma. We've signed up with Telstra on their Homeline Plus account. Local calls 17.5 cents, capped STD calls and line rental is $29.95, but H gets an $11 per month discount because he's on the old age pension. So we're getting it for $18.95 a month. We're keeping our broadband with optus and the mobile with Virgin. We also get a bonus cordless Telstra phone.

I found a really good deal for Virgin wireless broadband + home phone for $60 and you can get rid of your landline. But when I checked to see if we had coverage, we didn't. : ( They say it will come within the year, so I'll change then. Check these links out:

Magazine article about virgin broadband.


  1. Rhonda, congratulations on getting it all worked out, sometimes it can be a maze. We dropped our land line in 2004. The numbers told the story and it was redundant to have both. When the service area extension happens I think you'll be happy dropping your land line.

  2. Thanks for that link Rhonda, it sounds like a really good deal. I will check to see if it's available in my area. I would love to say goodbye to Optus.

  3. Melissa, I think they make it confusing on purpose. I'll be dropping our land line as soon as possible. : )

    Me too, Michelle. I hope you have coverage now. I think from memory you're in Brisbane? If so, I think you'll be in luck. Let me know how it goes.

  4. Michelle, I think you'll find that Virgin mobile is owned by Optus see under "Notes to Editors"
