I think we use same isp and prices are close
and we have no alternatives where we are
Your only alternative for you is then broadband and Optus and Telstra
probably go past your door
There are also other resellers around like the Electricity Companies who
have cable they will let you on
Some schools IT suppliers are already doing work with them in other

	Subject: ISP's

	Our contract with the ISP has just expired and I was hoping that
I could get some advice and contact details with regards to ISPs.
Currently we have a data cap of 20 gig a month. Our current monthly bill
includes link rental, router/firewall rental and 20 gig of data.  We run
off a microwave link and it is costing us in the vicinity of $4000 a
month. We have a 2Mbps symmetric upload and download speed. Is this a
reasonable amount to pay per month - or are there better deals around? 


	We would not want to reduce our upload and download speed and
our local telephone exchange can only handle 512k.

	In terms of the microwave link - I am not sure why the College
has not explored other options. What else is available?

	Any help would be much appreciated.
