It's the same as migrating from Telstra Bigpond to *any* other ADSL
providers. You must ring up Bigpond, get them to cancel the account (they
can do this while you wait. On no account allow them to ring you back. the
buggers never do). Bigpond will then issue you with a code that confirms
that their speed codes have been removed from your line. Most other ADSL
providers now have a sign up form that has a field for entering this
cancellation code (I know Internode certainly does). Migrating from
Bigpond is a pain but it can be done.
