I don’t know about you, but I can’t imagine life without ‘always on’ fast broadband.  Thinking back even only a few years, I realise how much it’s changed the way I do things, both at work and at home. If for some reason the network goes down, it is moments before my wife pops her head around the corner and says “is something up with the net?”

The same happens if the broadband slows down. More and more, our home experience is linked to quality broadband being on and working as you expect it to. This leads me to something that has confounded me for the last few years of my working life, which is why more customers don’t choose to be with us on our BigPond Cable broadband product.

Don’t get me wrong, those who know it, love it. It is particularly popular with gamers and those who need the best performing broadband they can lay their hands on. But I really want to get the word out there, and get more people on to the amazing experience that is BigPond Cable broadband.

So until 15 December, we’re dropping the price on one of our most popular cable broadband offers. Now, for just $78 per month for 24 months (min cost $1,872 plus usage), new bundle customers in Sydney and Melbourne BigPond® Cable areas can enjoy the Telstra Complete Home Saver 200GB Cable Bundle.

And being BigPond, you don’t need to watch the clock on your usage.  We don’t burden you with peak/off-peak restrictions, and you also don’t get hit with surprise excess usage charges either.  If the monthly usage allowance is reached, the speed slows to 256kbps, that’s all.

To sweeten the deal, our Telstra Plus support team are available on the phone for up to six free calls in the first 30 days from the activation of your bundle. These are some of our best local techs, to help you smooth the changeover to Telstra and help with your in-home networking needs. That’s normally $29.95 for a month, so it’s a nice extra to make life a bit easier.

So the key points on this deal:

  • High-speed, reliable broadband
  • Elite Cable speeds (or free upgrade to Ultimate Cable if you’re in a Melbourne Ultimate Cable area and you don’t already have BigPond Cable broadband)
  • No on-peak/ off-peak restrictions
  • No additional usage charges to reduce those hidden surprises – speeds are simply slowed.
  • A bonus 30 day access to Telstra Plus on the phone to make sure you are getting the most out of your package – included value of $29.95
  • Ongoing 24/7 technical support online and on the phone so you can get help when you need it most, even if it is at 2am in the morning! You can also get help via Twitter and Facebook, even in the wee hours.
  • No line rental charges on your home phone.

So that’s it – $78 per month for a 24 month 200GB high speed cable deal, available until 15 December 2011.  Hope you like it!

Please note: This offer is only available to new bundle customers in the Sydney and Melbourne BigPond Cable areas.
