Hard to work exactly but high speed cable seems to be $100 for 25GB discounted to $50.
Bill works out to be between $145 and $160 per month for the lot.
Telstra seems to be desperate for customers to keep their land lines, hence a rather good new deal.
Mobiles stay the same, although we could get new phones and better deals if we agree to a two year contract. I hate being tied to contracts but we have gone with a two year one for our home phone and internet.

100 GB high speed cable internet.
The 100 GB internet was the clincher. We have only just had our allowance increased to 25 GB from 12 GB, but because the internet is working faster, we download more and now are coming perilously close to the 25 GB. 100GB seems excessive, but I expect we will be chewing through in no time at all. R can listen to internet radio without restriction and I can watch ABC's Iview without a worry and see all the You Tube clips I want to. I ain't sayin nuffin about what else may consume bandwidth.
