  • Wireless in Melbourne

    On the 22nd May, 2002, Alphalink (Australia) Pty Ltd became Australia's 100th Telecommunications Carrier.

    Alphalink intends to use its Carrier Licence to provide a Residential broadband Service to its Members via Wireless at very affordable prices.

    Very cool!

    Interesting pricing scheme:

    <u>Wireless Access Option 1</u>

    11Mbit theoretical maximum service
    Monthly fee $27.50
    Installation fee $330

    <u>Wireless Access Option 2</u>

    56 Mbit theoretical maximum service
    Monthly fee $27.50
    Installation fee $1650

    Alphalink's data charging structure is complex, with the plan's monthly 3GB of data broken up into three usage timezones as follows:

    Super Peak 5pm - 1am: 200MB
    Peak 8am - 5pm: 800MB
    Off Peak 1am - 8am: 2000MB

    Tweak, I dare ya to get the 56Mbit connection! :)

        56Mbps..... that's faster than a T3 link!!! :eek:

        But what's Alphalink's connection to the Internet? If it's less than 56Mbps of course you won't get that out of the service :(
        What came first - Insanity or Society?
