Response to Re: Papua New Guinea Internet is 300000 times a rip off.

Yes, there is a monthly fee charged by most ISPs in Australia but it is very, very small compared to the service, bandwidth speed and amount of free data. For example, I am with Adam EzyChoice on a 12 month contract and I pay $50 monthly and I get 100GB data every month. That's right 100GB every month. I only paid $200 at the beginning of the contract for their wireless VOIP modem.
Now think of, for instance, how many movies you can download in a month to utilize your 100GB of data.
You compare this to PNG and you do the maths...
