I mainly use my PC - desk variety. Unlimited download etc.

I still use a land line - free calls to all phones - including mobiles. It all comes via Telstra Velocity - Foxtel, computer, FTA, Landline, mobiles etc.

I have a mobile phone - cost $7 from Telstra - which I use with a prepaid set-up - linked to Telstra Velocity. My plan costs me about $5 per month but I generally roll it over as I don't use it all.

My wife has the latest iPhone from Apple - linked to Velocity.

I do have a spare laptop for holidays etc.

I'd have to work it out - Foxtel's in there too. My wife's mobile is in it - and she's buying the phone over the contract length. Seemed a good idea - rather than paying out so much in one go.

I think - without Foxtel - including landline, wife's mobile package (calls/net etc), Internet, it must be just over $100 a month ? But that does include the payment to buy her phone. :)

We're with TPG for internet and home phone landline, $70 there, my phone plan will be $15 with numobile but my missus does her own thing and we buy our own phones.
