I've just set up /exactly/ that thismorning. Yes, it is a real static IP,
publicly routable (as far as I can tell). Havn't had much of a chance to
play with it so far, but I'm very pleased with what i've seen.
Make sure you get the ethernet modem, not the standard USB thing, as it's a
winmodem and I couldn't find any nix drivers for it.
There is a once off setup fee of $99. TPG don't block any ports, and
servering is quite a viable option.

They have had this plan for many months now, but it has only become
available in the ACT in the last week or two. I don't get the impression
that it's a scam. If it is, It's the highest quality scam I've ever been
deceived into ;-/

The link is quite fast and stable thus far, and it is very nice to have
everything statically addressed.

Would reccomend it. It's by far the best value ADSL plan I've ever seen in
this town.

| Okay so I need to get ADSL in the next week or so, I have had a look at
| and notice they have an unlimited plan, with 256Kbit ADSL this sounds too
| good to be true.
| $70/month for unlimited time and download, also they claim you get a
| ip address.
| I must say the idea of using this and running a mail server to handle an
| record for or something is very tempting, along with using
| it as my standard conection for home.
| Do they let you run servers? have any other people used this unlimited
| account and had any problems? Are they likely to change the plans sometime
| soon and keep you locked in somehow? How long is their contract period? (I
| can not find that information in the FAQ or on the standard adsl webpage
| there.
