I remember quite clearly during public presentations by TransACT a
statement that local network traffic would be free. But last week I was told by a fairly
reliable source that this functionality had been dropped and that all
network traffic would be going through the ISPs connected to the service.
The implications of this would severely reduce the functionality of the
service for my needs and drive the cost up even more.

BTW, has anyone done a calculation of how much it would cost to move the
3G of data included with Telstra's ADSL service via TransACT/Netspeed?
Lools like around $500+/month to me so I won't be rushing to use the
service. :-)

If anyone has any more accurate or up-to-date info I'd be very interested.
