[LINK] Bigpond ad -- bad maths

I am just seeing an ad on tv for Bigpond Under $1/day for first 12 
months on 24 month plan for eligible customers. BUT the fine print 
across the bottom of the screen says the cost is $59.95/month. As far 
as I know, months still have 30 or 31 days, except for February. So 
how do they figure "Under $1/day"?

I've sent a complaint to the ACCC. If anyone else wants to, their 
hard-to-find online complaint page is at:

[It's a mess in terms of its function. No tracking number; reset of 
fields if an initial submit is incomplete; no way to return to the 
website upon completion. But they did send me a copy via email of 
what I sent. Pity they don't tell you they are going to. They could 
use some help.]
