Goodbye Line Rental – Hello TPG UUL Plans

August 2, 2007 at 6:08 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

For the last 5 years or so I have been signed up with ADSL broadband connections. In those past 5 years, I have rarely used the phone line to make phone calls. I use my mobile or VOIP systems such as Skype to make voice calls. So why do I have to spend money on a service which I do not use?

TPG have made an announcement on their new plans which provide complete package from the Exchange to your house. You will no longer require line rental with Telstra or another telco. Their UUL plans includes the copper wire connection and the ADSL2+ connection.

The only downside is that their plans do not yet have the VOIP option but you can still easily sign up to a provider such as Skype.

I’ve just purchased a new home so hopefully by the time settlement occurs I can look at these new plans. 🙂

  1. Sound like a good way to go.
    Unfortunatlly I can’t even get ADSL2+ yet. 😦


  2. Good stuff – telcos should be worried. Congratulations on your new home! Tough luck McKee, Queenslanders are always a bit slow…

    BTW, holiday’s been great. This is only the second time I’ve switched on a computer since mid-July – been to slack to blog…


  3. […] have beaten TPG to the market with ADSL/ADSL2+ broadband plans that do not require a third party line rental […]
