I tried dialling in to Alphalink this (Sunday) evening to check my mail. I got through, but then got disconnected for no reason. I tried dialling back in, but got disconnected with a "You are already logged in" message. This went on for exactly 3 hours, until my non-existent "connection" timed out.
I'm tempted to ditch Alphalink for an ISP who have their shit together. (There's this and their network being grindingly slow, and that's even by dialup standards.) Any recommendations? (Assume that broadband is currently out of the question.)
ozemail dialup (which i used at home for about 4 years until the switch to ozemail adsl) is a very reliable service, much more so than telstra (which i used at work for a couple years). slightly faster too, relatively good service and you don't get dialing in errors much.
We use austarmetro and have done so for about 3 years. Never really had any problems with it and get a reasonable connection most of the time. Don't know about price comparisions, as my brother got it with his computer purchase deal.
