I recall a while ago a friend got home ISDN (don't ask why)... He already
had the current phone copper to his house maxed out with a couple of phone
lines, so Telstra just pulled another line. He lives in an underground
phone area, and this involved them just "blowing" a new line down his
little conduit thingie to his house -- it apparently looked like a
parachite with cable attached.
I guess Telstra's advantage is that everyone expects to have to have a
Telstra conduit into their house. If I as the resident paid for this
conduit, surely I own it and can put TransACT down it?
