Well, well. After having this broadband service with Telstra Bigpond for a while, Telstra have changed from “perhaps we’ll cap you when you go over 10gig” to “we will cap you when you go over 10gig”. Not super-happy about it, but hey, I was expecting to happen one day. They’re stating that they’ll cap accounts to 64kbps (that’s a small b, so bits). People over at Whirlpool are bitching that they can’t get downloads up to 64kbps, but hey, you’ve gotta remember tcp overhead as well. So far, 64kbps seems ok for checking my emails and general web browsing, although I think alot of this is helped along by my proxy server. I might look into ADSL2 later on in the year when pricing starts to get a little more competitive.
