Telstra Finally Offers Visual Voice Mail...For a Price

"Two and a half years after much of the rest of the world got access to the visual voicemail feature used on Apple's iPhone range, and a year and half after the service hit Vodafone locally, Telstra has implemented the option, announcing this morning that it would charge customers $5 per month for the privilege of using it."
$5 per month to use visual voice mail, after waiting two and a half years for the privilege? If I was a Telstra customer I think I would be slightly peeved at this announcement. Just like I'm peeved with charging me for the "privilege" of tethering my iPhone. Ridiculous, especially since rival Vodafone has been offering their visual voicemail for free... for two years!
