Yes it's a half price promo for the first 12 months...a good deal.
> 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
> showing the "normal" price which applies after the 12 month mark.
