On this point, I'd just like to mention that according to an email I've
been sent, Telstra has again offered a "Get out of ADSL free" card. You
even get to keep your ADSL modem if you like. This is pretty neat for
those of us who were away during the extremely short February offer.

So what I want to ask people is: Is an ADSL modem an ADSL modem, or are
there different breeds of ADSL modem? If I want to switch to a different
ADSL provider than Telstra, is the same ADSL modem going to work?

The modem Telstra gave me is an Alcatel Speed Touch Home, if that makes
a difference.
