Reliability of the Telstra cable network
Many users would be happy to accept a 3GB cap, but the most optimistic way to describe the Telstra cable network is problematic. It has only been in the past few months that rolling cable outages across four states have stopped. Many of my friends in college have Telstra cable, and the performance and reliability has always been woeful. Despite some improvement lately, the service is still down at regular intervals. When compared to Optus@Home reliability, Telstra cable doesn't hold a candle to it.
