Hello all- I just recently moved to Bundaberg, QLD and wanted to get set up with a pre-paid mobile broadband. I'm trying Telstra right now, but even though my surfing habits are pretty tame (few vids and pics) I'm chewing up my credit at a horrifying rate!! I watched half of the Super Bowl and browsed a few sports message boards, Facebook and did my banking, and found out I chew up almost 1 GB of my credit Coming from America where I had unlimited for $30 a month, I'm stunned. I download almost nothing off the net, browse very few sites with vids and pics, but I'm going to go broke at this rate. I go thru about $30 of data in 3days WTF!! I know folks that play facebook games 12 hours a day that don't go thru that much over here. Are there better pre-paid mobile bb options, other than Telstra? I can't afford this!! I only use my internet a few hours a day tops, but I can't get used to how fast my credit goes Thanks

Telstra is the most expensive in Australia you could try dodo.com.au see what's on offer.
