I just received a text message from Telstra, my mobile phone service provider, saying that text messages to international numbers will go up to AU$0.50 per message from Dec 2.
50 cents! What a fucking ripoff! Just how much does it actually cost for telstra to pass on a meagre hundred bytes or so from my phone to another phone. The time has come to do something about this bullshit. We are being gouged by the phone companies. Rock on skype everywhere.
