Soldjah, I'm curious, how much was it going to cost? I, too, was unaware they offered that domestically.
It was $129 a month, but included the phone with it... unlimited phone calls to anywhere in Australia including mobile phones. And no line rental. For $149 a month they threw in a PS3 with the new Singstar (yay >.>) and some keyboard thing for it. I was gonna get the $149 package since I'm still without my own PS3 D:
It is an Optus exlusive deal, and they are currently only offering it in testing areas. I just happen to live in one of the areas they wanted to trial now.
Currently I am paying about $70 a month for the phone as it is, and $70 a month for internet (150Gb ADSL2+), so the cost wasn't the problem... the wife didn't want to get locked in to the 24 month contract for the new internet just in case we wanted to change over or had issues paying at any stage. As it stands, we can cut off our current internet or drop it back from $70 to something cheaper if finances become a problem.
