TPG offers $19.95 broadband

Yet another ISP has sliced the price of its ADSL plans, this time taking broadband prices below the $20 mark.

Australian-owned ISP TPG has announced it will offer an ADSL entry-level plan for $19.95, including 200MB of downloads per month.

The Broadband Value plan, which is based on 256Kbps access speed, is available now to both metro and regional customers (excluding Tasmania) on a six-month contract.

The plan has a one-time set-up fee of $129 and features 10MB of personal Web space, as well as five e-mail addresses and free spam and virus filters.

Users who download more than 200MB of data in any given month will be charged an excess usage fee of 15 cents per megabyte. This amount however, will be capped once a customer reaches $59.95 per month.

Customers will also be given a free USB modem upon sign-up.

TPG is not the first ISP to offer broadband for under $20 a month. NSW-based ISP launched a $19.95 ADSL plan incorporating a 200MB monthly download allowance last month. The Star Trak Lite plan is based on a 12-month contract, with excess usage charged at 15 cents per megabyte. Similarly to TPG, the user’s monthly charge will be capped at $60 each month.

The launch of both $19.95 plans follows Telstra’s announcement of $29.95 BigPond ADSL and cable retail products in February.

TPG’s other contract-based ADSL plans start from $49.95 and include unlimited downloads each month. The ISP also offers “pay as you go” services, starting from $19.95 per month in metro areas. Usage is charged at 15 cents per megabyte for the first 400MB.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
