aaNet is introducing new 1.5mbit plans. They are at a lower cost than the current plans, and provide some additional options in relation to off-peak downloads.

------------------------

256/OPC1 1GB 2x $24.90
256/OPC2 4GB 2x $29.90
256/OPC3 16GB 2x $34.90
256/OPC5 UL - $44.90

512/OPC1 1GB 2x $29.90
512/OPC2 8GB 2x $34.90
512/OPC3 16GB 2x $39.90
512/OPC4 32GB 2x $49.90

1500/OPC5 1GB 1x $39.90
1500/OPC6 14GB 2x $49.90
1500/OPC7 26GB 2x $59.90
1500/OPC8 48GB 2x $79.90
1500/OPC9 48GB 3x $89.90

512 Sym - OPC1 16GB 2x $59.90
512 Sym - OPC2 36GB 2x $69.90

(excess on the above plans is $4/gb except 256/OPC1 @ $15/gb)


From 1am to 8am each day is the off-peak period. During the off-peak period your quota of included data is much more valuable, allowing you to download either 2x or 3x the amount you could download during the peak period. For example on a 3x plan, for each 1GB of quota, you can download 3GB of data during off-peak.

------------------------

These plans will be available early next week on the aaNet Web site and Members areas.

Regards,
The aaNet Team

The present 1500:

What about those that had just changed plans within the last week or so ?

I'm sure there are some that changed who don't read forums much and realise that new plans were imminent..

They should email billing@aanet to see what can be done.

a question jason,


$39.90 for 1 gig 1500kbps

then a jump to $49.90 14 gig 1500 kbps

why a huge jump from 1 gig to 14 gig.

1 gig is for an entry level to 15000 kbps

the huge jump to 14 gig is putting me off and no doubt others as i would not use 14 gig a month though a plan in the middle like 4-5 gig for $44.00 a month would tempt me to move from my current 3 gig plan of 512 kbps.

guess i will stay where i am for now until aanet stop being like telstra and coach people onto 1500 kbps on an entry plan of 1 gig then make them jump to an amount not required like 14 gig.

when i find a provider with a sensible range of downloads corrosponding to the price then i will go to 1500 kbps with whoever i find is sensible enough to offer it.

Currently one can join telstra on 2 year contract 1500 kbps 12 gig for $69.95
half price 12 months if got home phone and mobile like many aussies do
also free modem
also free connection

tls x 2 year = $1260 total cost (free modem and no connection fees)

aanet x 2 year $1200 (plus aditional cost for modem and connection).

ya got to do better and get away from telstra approach of large gap download allowance between entry plan and viable
usuage plan next .

a 1500 kbps plan of 4-5 gig for $40 or an entry plan of 2 gig 1500 kbps $39.90 is far better and will draw more customers in my opinion.

There are many who have a large plan but don`t use the download availabe so would rather a small download for 14 gig with maybe an odd occasion where they would need to pay a $4 excess for a specific month because they got up downloading a bit.

Jason,

How long does a speed change take?


Will by speedtouch handle 1500k?

I'm pretty sure that the speed change occurs close to your anniversary date. And I don't see why the speedtouch wouldn't be able to handle 1500k. But correct me if I am wrong.

It usually happens one or two days after the anniversary.... and the speedtouch is more than capable of 1500 - it can take up to 8000 if you let it :)

I would have to agree with seajay.

I asked this in the other thread and Jason seemed to indicate that it wasn't feasible...

The lowest price all the other ISPs seem to be offering 1.5mbits is $50 - however we were able to sneek in a low quota plan for $40.

There was not really any room in between this time around.

i saw jason`s post geoff but don`t see what the drama is.

An entry plan to 1500 kbps of 3 gig for $39.90 would be a lot better and would help some like me switch to 1500.

1 gig is not enough as i would maybe break it once in a while and be between 1-2 gig.

i stay where i am for now.

Telstra offering me in mount isa download speed 8meg x 384 12 gig allowance for $89.95 but i can get first 12 months for $45 per month.

i don`t do enough to warrent 8 meg speed, 1500kbps 3gig $39.90 would suit me.

Maybe jason doesn`t realise that many people wouldn`t use their allowance.

All the plans are based on average usage, however it simply is not possible to provide more than 1GB on that plan.

Not sure if it's been asked.

How soon till the new 6month plans are released and also a rough time-frame on when the 8mbit plans will be able to be chosen manually (after trial of course)

I've already referred a few people who are interested purely on pricing etc. and they are only holding off on churning at this stage and awaiting the 8mbit plans to be released (or if they get chosen for the trial).

Are these the new plans that reflect the changes in prices after the introduction of the 8mb uncapping or are there more down the track once aaNet releases its 8mb plans (after the trials I missed out on :( ?)

cheers

so do these new plan prices reflect the change in Telstra prices? (I may be ignorant here assuming there was some associated with the uncapping)

cheers

I thought there may have been a ~$40 plan with about 5gb but that may be unrealistic - the 1gb would be useless to me on 1500 but the 14gb would be overkill and wasted

cheers

I know, I agree and said the same thing again today in regard to the 8000 plans. Even if they couldn't price it much different to the 14GB plan, there is a psychological effect of having the plan more realistic to what you actually need.
