PBase from Australia

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by Dick Campbell, Oct 26, 2003.

  1. Does anyone (from Australia) know whether it's practical to use PBase if you
    live in Australia?

    The 100 MB space allowance is much better than the measly 10 MB the Telstra
    allows, admittedly free of charge. Now that I have a 6 MP camera which
    produces 3 MB files I can only get 2 or 3 full size images in 10 MB where
    100 MB is a much more useful 25 to 30.

    I think that there is an upload limit on Big Pond Cable. If this true? If so
    what id the limit (hopefully more than 100 MB/month)?

    I think the upload speed ai also limited. Can anyone say what it is? I
    suspect that it's fairly low.

    Can I simply pay more more storage on Big Pond?

    Over-riding the technical issues. PBase looks like a good photographic forum
    as well.

  2. Did you know that the use of Google together with Netscape and/or
    Internet Explorer or even Opera will nicely compare say Bigpond with
    Dodo and Iinet.

    There really is not any need to involve the rest of the world in
    something you are too lazy to researh yourself.

    Sorry but you really deserve this

  4. Certainly. I have no trouble with the upload speed of images. (I have
    1500/256 ADSL)
    My advice is to dump bigpond as fast as you can. There are plenty of
    broadband ISPs that offer free uploads.
    I think its around 16k per second, but Im not 100% sure.
    I really like the forums on dpreview...
