Telstra was absolutely dismal however, exchange was overloaded and even at 9pm we were still only getting approx 2.5Mbit DL & 0.6Mbit UL.

Now my partner and I own our own home less than 3km from our old house and can no longer get NBN, on Exetels Unlimited ADSL2+ plan now @ $59.99/mth (included phone line rental) and its a neat compromise.

TPG is killing me.

I didn't realise that it actually cost for them to hook up a service on which they are benefiting!

But a quick google search has shown a few people stating that a new line connection fee to the house is approx $299.
