gotalk goes naked DSL, bundles VoIP too

Telco says its naked DSL and VoIP packages specifically aimed at challenging iiNet

gotalk has jumped on the naked DSL bandwagon with the announcement of what it calls an aggressive challenge to iiNet, Telstra and Optus naked DSL services.

Naked DSL provides high speed broadband access without the need for a landline phone service or line rental.

gotalk released a statement this morning announcing a range of Great Escape standalone naked DSL plans that come with a free VoIP account, as well as the opportunity to bundle naked DSL with its existing VoIP plans.

The Great Escape plans start at $49.95, offering a peak and offpeak quota of 3GB + 6GB. A $69.95 plan offers 12GB + 24GB peak/offpeak, while the $79.95 plan buys 20GB + 40GB peak/offpeak.

gotalk only counts downloads in the data quota and says the new plans are specifically aimed at challenging iiNet's naked DSL services, where uploads are counted towards quotas.

The company has also added an option to bundle naked DSL with its Aussie VoIP Pack, called 'Escape with the Lot' priced at $95 per month.

"The approach that we've taken is that we're not increasing the price of your service to cover the 'free' local/national/mobile calls component," said gotalk CEO, Steve Picton.

"I believe we will see a significant take up of naked DSL plans in 2008 as there is an increasing number of people who use their mobile phone and don't need the fixed phone... Naked DSL is obviously a cost effective solution offering access to broadband without having the expense of a telephone connection," he said.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
