View Full Version : ClearNet Tempest 256K

06-01-2003, 04:08 PM
Hi, I am interested in getting the Internet Connection in the title above, but I obviously have a few things I would like answered first. Since the ClearNet people (or is it the paradise.net people? or the TelstraClear people?) aren't likely to just let me trial the connection, I would like to hear from anyone who actually has the connection, and what things you do and dont like about it.

I already have an ADSL JetStart connection thru paradise.net but have just moved house, and since I have to pay Telecom $99 to reconnect, I thought I would explore other options first.
I understand that Tempest 256K costs $125 to set up, and then is $99 a month. Does anyone know if that would include both the Telecom setup fee and/or the $30 a month they charge for ADSL access??

Any help you guys and gals can give will be greatly appreciated,

You'll be lucky to get Tempest, as Clear's coverage is low (they aren't just reselling Jetstream). You also need to be a business to be elegable.
You get what is advertised, and they don't message with the traffic like Xtra etc.

Tempest isn't Jetstream, so there are no Telecom charges involved. However I believe it's for businesses, so you may need to be a business to get it - contact Clear.Net about it.
