Where is the value proposition here?

Wot, they're gonna offer LESS customer service than BigPond to save you a few bux? Har-de-har-har-har.

No value here

I love Telstra's idea of "Cheap".

With my current ISP I get 1000GB of downloads (split across Peak and Off-Peak) for $60 per month and that inclides the phone line rental. If I do manage to exceed the download volume I am throttled to 1Mbps.

More freedom than most Telstra offerings.

But, Metro NSW only for now, now't for the deep north or elsewhere.
