We have just changed from Optusnet DSL broadband 1 gig plan (49.95 a month) which came with 50 free local calls because we had home phone with optus too. Now i am with Adam Internet ADSL2+ (can't wait....have a look here). My question is this.....we are after a good home phone plan now and i was looking at PrimusTelecom. Anyone had any experience with this company? Or recommend a good home phone plan with anyone else? Thanks brew

I just changed to aanet, price is good at $30.00 a month with a two gig download at 512K's No phone deal however telstra offers 50 free calls lately.
For ADSL deals go to whirlpool.net.au

Hi x-member diamond, I fully agree with you what a pack of uesless @ickheads. We were with telstra first when we first bought the house then primus came up with this u bute plan free calls,local, long dist,yudda yudda yudda all the bullsh@t under the sun,internet get great service ha what a joke spent more time on hold to iprimus trying to find out why my dial up kept failing than I did on the net, would never recommend them to my worst enemy they would probably enjoy the music (albums) you listen to while on hold for in excess of 60 mins thank god for loudspeaker on the home fax machine. Where now with optus home, mobiles, internet, great service no dial up probs about to change over to broadband

PS I HATE THEM THEY SHOULD BE BLOWN UP

Take Care Vitara

I can't understand why would anyone want to be with Optus and similar foreign companies. By far the best service i ever saw was WA Westnet.
Outstanding performance.

They really have what i call service. I have been with them for 3 years now and nothing is too hard for their customer service department, even with problems that are not directly related to a service they providing. I am not conected with Westnet in any way apart from being their customer.
