The fact they are not just SA sounds promising.

Is anyone or has any one churned to Escapenet??

Considering it to save $10-20 a month (+129 upfront for no contract BS), but with so little to read about them from users. I am hesitant.

some times that is a good thing, I should have a link here on Friday. So I can let you know how the go.

Straight up ecapenet have been around for a while, so if there aren't complaints that generally a good thing :). You only talk when you are unhappy on the internet.

Are you looking at ADSL on NBN?

ADSL, Telstra Only exchange.. So its only going to make a difference per provider once it's on their network. Node has been Ok, not as solid as it used to be for me at times. But its more the $100pm for 200gb that's not cutting it.
I hardly game these days, so a few ms isn't going to justify the added $20 a month spend on node. (I'd be doubtful of that lasting anyway with TPG at the reins)
So Escapenet, AUSBBS....$120+ to churn is an added month and a bit, or $10per month over the next 12 months, meaning a saving of only $10 a month for the move...If I stay 12 months... Then, on Whirlpool, mention that Node Reach customers are getting a plan review "soon"....

Rather than raising a new thread for this kinda question, this looked like the best spot...

Looking at moving into a rental and have been checking what is available around my town in regards to ADSL2+ ports.
Is there any way (without contacting the company directly) to know what hardware they use?
(As I know from previous experience that Optus have over done there ports and it is horrible)

Could try http://www.adsl2exchanges.com.au/detail ... ystart.php if a phone line is connected or someone in the area is willing to let you try their phone number, beg a neighbor?

Telstra will have whatever, especially in rural areas could be any one of a number of chipsets but hopefully Broadcom line drivers are used which provider better reliability than other vendors line drivers.

iiNet and the more reputable ISPs either don't resell Optus or have moved away from reselling Optus ports due to congestion (Internode was one).

Asking each company is probably going to give you more accurate intel but I would ask a sales rep and their email support as sales reps are keen to tell you anything to get your business.

I asked Escape Net... apparently for naked its an Optus port, and for phone or net its Telstra. Atleast in my area, so looks like I might be going with them, just need to work things out

So I got the keys to my rental today, had ordered net yesterday with Escapenet...
Order went through awesomely quickly, and the net is already connected.
I am very impressed, and my speed test results weren't horrible, and for ADSL2+ in a country Victorian town, I'm very happy

I have a question, being that we are all on these forums as a group of possibly like minded individuals, could we create our own ISP and supply Internet to ourselves at cost :?:

I know that sounds like a funny question, but it'd be cheaper for us all and a major headache I'm sure to setup, but it could be done right :?:

No. It'd be super expensive.

Before the days of the NBN it'd be doable... but there's no one that does whole sale to <1000 connections on the NBN.

Really the NBN and the stupid way it operates is why it'd cost too much.
