We currently have a home phone that we very rarely ring out on and dial up internet which costs us in total $65ish

We are wanting to speed up our internet now that i will be home more and not working

Not really fussed if we have a home phone or not but dont want to really spend to much more than what we do now

What are our options?

Also we both need new cell phones before bubs is born so changing providers is an option

how much internet do you think that you would use in a month, that will determine most of it

this one is good if you dont use that much internet, but I am not sure how 256 compares to the maximum speed, but it would be much faster than dial up you are currently on.

we are on the top vodafone plan and have only had great experiences with them

sounds like the minimal plan will be fine for you then at most providers.for broadband by itself you are looking at a minimum of $55 to $65 so it is probably worth keeping the phone if you would make close to $10 in calls a month.

I have looked at giving up the ph line heaps but we would not really save much as we are heavy internet users. It is my life line sometime with kids as I can not always pop out to do things so I do it over the phone.

If you have adsl or cable internet it is worth looking into voip (voice over internet provider). We pay $10.18 a month for our landline and that includes 500 minutes of local and national calling. Check out italk Oh, its now $11/month!!

We are with Vodafone aswell and on the plan where we have home phone and 2g of broadband for $55 a month, cell phone wise we are also with vodafone mine is on contract for $50 a month that includes the base plan which is $30 with 600 texts and 20 (i think) free min and 1 bestmate and the $20 family plan where you have 4 other vodafone numbers that you can call, text, video etc as much as you like for the month, great for talking to hubby who drives a truck so is away out of town most days.
