OzEmail joins sub-$30 broadband brigade

The broadband price war continues as OzEmail enters the under $30 broadband market with a new $29.95 plan.

In what it claims is a key differentiator from other ISP broadband offers, OzEmail is not charging excess usage fees.

“Other ISPs charge up to 15 cents per megabyte – without warning – once a customer reaches their download limit. The result is bill-shock, a bill at the end of the month that, while giving the ISP a tidy sum, gives their customers a real shock,” said OzEmail managing director Trevor Duff.

However, Optus, for one, offers the same to its ADSL customers. Customers on all its plans face no financial penalty for exceeding their download limits. Instead, speed throttling applies.

OzEmail joins a number of ISPs all attempting to compete with Telstra’s $29.95 introductory broadband deal, including Primus, iiNet, TPG and Optus.

OzEmail now has four broadband plans, all with a flat rate.

The new OzE Starter is priced at $29.95 per month at 256Kbps with a 300Mb download limit. Once customers reach the limit, the connection is scaled down to a dial-up speed of 56Kbps.

Previously, the cost of OzEmail’s cheapest ADSL plan was $49.95 per month.

Other plans include the OzE Saver which is priced at $49.95 per month with 256Kbps. However, after 12GB is reached speed may be slowed during peak periods.

The OzE Explorer costs $64.95 a month at 512Kbps, with no monthly download limit. And the OzE Maximiser costs $99.95 per month at 1.5Mbps.

There is a line activation fee of $99 for six-month plans. However, OzEmail incurs this cost for customers on a 12–18 month plans.

OzEmail also supplies a ‘modem in a box’ for $129. This is provided for free to customers on an 18-month contract.

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.
