- buy a wireless router with VoIP
- a wireless broadband modem (for connection to FishTelecomm Etherwave) which we will self install
- pay $9.95 a month VoIP subscription through someone like Engin
- pay $39.95 for wrieless broadband with a 5Gb monthly download limit
we will still spend the same if not a little less that we do currently per year for a telephone bill through Telstra. This is even considering we are on a plan with Telstra that gives us 99 cent for 3 hrs calls to family within 100Kms (which is %99 of our calls). Once we get this up and running we will disconnect from Telstra completely and just use our mobiles in case of emergencies.
The only thing holding us back at the moment is that we can’t transfer our current telephone number across yet. Local Number Portability is coming but at least Engin have no idea how long it will be before they offer it.
