I work for a company in Hobart nowadays. I quit my Dallas job, for a number of reasons, but the main one was that my internet from home was getting worse and worse and became untenable. Other issues at work made me not want to commit to getting an office, so I left. So, here is my latest message to Telstra:

I have two wireless accounts with Telstra. They were both on wireless modems, but about 14 months ago, when I was trying to find a way to make things work well enough for me to not lose my job, I was pushed to go to a USB modem, and a new plan. I lost that job due to lack of internet connectivity to my home, nine months ago.

The internet in my area has been getting worse and worse because you guys first denied there was a problem, then finally said you have no plans to fix it. So, I am used to issues, but it's been getting worse and worse. Last night and this morning I could not connect at all ( the modem connects, but there is no data ). I know your technical support knows less about the internet than my son, please don't ask me to call them.

So, this morning I tried for over an hour, and then I tried the wireless modem, and it worked. So, I am sure that, as well as our network issues, my USB modem is broken. It is still under plan until April, I am told. I have been told that I need to pay $120 to buy out my plan AND sign up to a NEW plan to get a modem that works. So, you guys pushed me in to a new plan I didn't want, for a modem that didn't work, and as it's now completely broken, I need to pay my way OUT of the plan I didn't want AND start a new plan. That's what the guy in the store told me. Are you guys for real ?
