It’s good to be back


After a horrifying week and a half on dial-up, I’m finally back on broadband. It’s interesting to experience how geared the web—and my business—is to broadband these days. Working on a 56K modem was like crawling through a vat of molasses. Anyway, for those of you looking for a good service provider in Australia, I can tell you my experience with iiNet has been excellent. They were fast, efficient and friendly, and the support people were great. Since they’re taking care of my phone line too, I can potentially reach download speeds of up to 12,000kbps! (Already, at 1,500, it’s faster than any connection I’ve had before.) Rockin’ good news!

    Well, let’s give iNet a couple of months and see if you still want to buy them flowers… (you know, until they get bought out by Telstra and the service goes to shit…)

    Yeah, I was about to say Pete … just because your telecom supplier won’t let you use your mobile in your house … [stiffled snigger]

    Yeah, that’s right. Lay the boot in. But don’t expect sympathy from me when your kazillion bps connection goes down because everyone on iNet has suddenly logged on to Second Life at the same time…
