I moving to a new townhouse and wants to connect to your Naked DSL 200GB TPG broadband plan.
When I try applying online I can't proceed since I don't have a landline number. Address of the new place is 14/20 Hewitt Ave, Footscray Vic 3011.
The reason TPG doesn’t let you proceed without entering in a home phone number is because with TPG’s Naked DSL, you need to have an active home phone number, and then they will disconnect it for you once they have connected up the broadband. I wouldn’t recommend connecting a home phone up with Telstra just to get Naked broadband with TPG because there are more cost-effective ways of connecting up a cheap service as Telstra will charge a disconnection fee.
There are two options you could look at, the first, is choosing another provider who can connect a Naked DSL service from an inactive line. The following providers should be able to do this for you:
iPrimus: 1300 137 794 – cheap plans, as well as a $69 unlimited Naked broadband plan
iiNet: 1300 106 571 – shorter contracts available and BoB modems on offer
Internode: 1300 106 571 – shorter contracts and excellent customer service
The other option, and probably a suitable option if you like the prices on TPG’s Naked broadband, is to opt for one of their home phone and broadband bundle deals. While it sounds like you have no need for a home phone, the prices on these plans are so low they actually match TPG’s Naked broadband prices. This means that you can get one of the plans to use the broadband data and you don’t even need to plug in a home phone if you don’t want to use it.
TPG ADSL2+ $39.99 10GB (peak) + 10GB (off peak) – price includes phone line rental
TPG ADSL2+ $49.99 50GB (peak) + 50GB (off peak) – price includes phone line rental
TPG ADSL2+ $59.99 Unlimited broadband – price includes phone line rental
The set-up fee on the TPG six-month contract is $99.95, and $79.95 on an 18-month contract. If you don’t yet have a modem to use with ADSL2+ broadband, TPG offers a WiFi modem for $109.95 (including delivery).
