@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyI just learned my sister has been paying $100 AUD p/m for 50mbps for multiple years. For context I am paying $99.99 for 1gbps.03:23:29
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyFunniest shit ever. She tried playing the "I am a long term customer they'll price match." bullshit. They told her they do not do price matching. The look on her face, chefs kiss03:25:27

Pretty standard for non techy folks. Just pay what they ask, don't shop around, etc.

I'm also going to assume it's Telstra.
03:31:11
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyOf course.03:31:18
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin Telstra are the internet, telstra are the only ones who can sell phone service, etc. Is your sister older? 03:31:43
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyYeah in her 50s03:33:01
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin :) 03:33:09
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyShe is basically a fangirl for them. Constantly regurgitating their marketing "They have the largest mobile network! They are the largest ISP!" etc etc. Never mind the fact that they over charge, underdeliver and have been riding on their old reputation for 20+ years.03:33:14
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin It's an older person mentality, they are the only/best ISP/phone provider. 03:35:17
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin They've been garbage for decades though. 03:35:32
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin My wife's parents were with Telstra for everything. $230/month I think their bill was. Got them better plans, on everything and it's now under $100/mo for all services combined. 03:36:17
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin $130/month for likely a few decades that they watsed. 03:36:42
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin $130/month for likely a few decades that they wasted. 03:36:46
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveylol, yeah its insane.03:37:46
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin #Captitalism 03:40:09
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyI know it may seem weird to some, laughing that she has been getting screwed over for years. But she really is an annoying fangirl, basically doing unpaid marketing for Telstra. We've been on family trips together she has no cell service yet I do on Kogan mobile (Optus network) paying a fraction of what she pays and I can't help but poke fun "That can't be right... Telstra have the biggest network".03:41:07
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin Oh yeah that's always fun. I laugh at people on contracts for multi thousand dollar phones too. 03:41:43

Ahem. Older person here who will tell an ISP to their customer service face if they aren't providing the best deal while I switch. Guess what we did last month.

Tech savvy. In the seriously small minority.
03:43:24
@traceyc:matrix.orgTraceyCI do not understand people who are fanboi/grls of any company. Like. it's just a service for money. What's to be loyal about?03:43:45

Quality service, good value, great customer service.
03:44:02
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin Of course you can fangirl/boi but also have a working brain. 03:44:20
@traceyc:matrix.orgTraceyCI mean, I'm a big fan of good customer service. But if a better deal comes by somewhere else, also with good customer service, that's just business03:44:30
@justin.zobel:kde.orgJustin I could get my internet a bit cheaper but it also comes down to quality, customer service, and anti-megacorp things. 03:45:05
