An 11 March email to customers of Internet service provider (ISP) Exetel has revealed the company is considering ADSL2 plans with unlimited uploads and downloads. The email states that the ISP believes "there will be ongoing 'convulsions' in the marketplace and there will be many permutations that will change ADSL2 offerings quite substantially over the coming months."
According to the email, the company is "close" to offering two unlimited plans to selected customers ("by invitation only") who have been with the ISP for longer than 12 months. One plan would be unlimited ADSL2 Internet for $75 per month including an Optus telephone line. The other would be $55 with a "BYO telephone line". The plans would have a minimum contract of 12 months.
In February, AAPT launched Australia's first unlimited residential ADSL2+ plans.
