PERTH-BASED internet service provider iiNet is in the box seat to buy rival OzEmail for about $100 million when bids for the company close today.

iiNet seem to be growing at an outstanding rate. I don't know where all the money is coming from to do this but I hope it comes off. Some sanity and competition in the top 3 ISPs in the country can't hurt.

iiNet could do with a shake-up themselves, as their prices are far from competitive. That is, unless you also promise to help their cause by tying yourself in with their [also] non-competitive phone plan.

Try getting a problem solved through their customer service. With Westnet, the first guy I talk to is the guy who solves my problem. I had to explain the positives of using PING with the non-defaults to the iiNet "ADSL Expert Team".
