For the past year I was on a Bigpond wireless internet connection, as my home does not have any ADSL. Last week, Bigpond told me that I might have ADSL (not ADSL 2). They have not confirmed this to me yet. I think they are still testing the line. Assuming, ADSL is available Bigpond is very expensive with the home phone and 25GB ADSL bundle - $98.00 per month for 24 months. My question is: Are the ADSL internet speeds provided by other providers slower than Bigpond, or are they of the same speed? Also, do they use the same phone line? I prefer other providers, as I will save a few dollars. Thank you for your assistance.
