Took me about 30 seconds to find
http://www.promo.bigpond.com/broadband/ADSL2PLUS2/index_html.php which has
details of their current $29.97/month-for-the-first-12-months deal.
$29.97 * 12 = $359.64, which is - last I checked - less than $1/day.
So either their fine print is simply wrong, or you're misreading it and it's
showing the "normal" price which applies after the 12 month mark.
