Looking for a new plan, kinda torn at the moment.

I like Optus, been with them for eons, however, the reception at my house is fk'n woeful. So much that I've complained to the TIO about Optus' lack of responsbility and refusal to do anything about it. I live inner-south side, and you'd think I'd get great reception right? Apparently f*cking not.

So.. with that being said, need a new provider. Don't want to go to Telstra, however they have the best reception in my area no question..

This is for the iPhone 4 btw. Nashy, no complaining. But.. I need some assistance.

lol. Every carrier worldwide will have bad reception with that heap of shit.

Seriously though. If you have the option to use NextG. Do it.

Other than that. I've been with Vodafone for f*cking ever. They are totally raaad.

Telstra's data allowance is totally woeful though. They charge for every single fkn thing. I'd rather unlimited text messages with Optus than being charged a mammoth amount for going over my data limit.

With Optus, you don't only get the great reception issues with the iPhone 4, you get access to Australia's oldest, most oversold and congested network.

It's worth it!

Their network is amazing. That's why it costs more.

They are getting better with prices too.

Vodafone without a shadow of the doubt. They are by far the best value(price/performance) deal out there.
The $49 cap is pretty damn good $450 calls with virtually everything included(The telstra cap has a lot of things excluded from the cap), 1.5GB data unlimited to V&3 and you get stuff like Visual Voicemail + an all round decent company quality wise.

the optus iphone 4 plan is the best. what is it, $59 for $550 calls, unlimited free sms/mms to all networks, and 2gb of data? thats insanely good.

telstra, well they might be good but theyre not worth the ridiculous prices they charge.

Yeah AP, that's all fine and well, except I have no f*cking Optus reception at my house, I cannot do my job without reception. I hate Telstra, I truly do.. but does anyone suggest a carrier that uses their network??

Cause I don't think there is..

Na, you're wrong.

Plenty of small carriers use the Optus 3G and GSM network.

Three have their own network, and roam to NextG on 850(roam) and 2100 3G
Vodafone use their own network in the 850, 900 and 2100 3G
Optus use their own network in 900 and 2100

Optus and Vodafone share towers in some reginal areas, but it's only the mast that is shared, there are two sets of equipment on the pole.

Three and Vodafone are owned by VHA, but do not share their networks at this stage.
