I am part of an ISP (Bandwidth Unlimited[1]) but we're not the
cheapest game in town for ADSL. Very Linux friendly though.

If you're after an unlimited account, I'd suggest a Comindico
reseller. Inspired Networking[2] are a good price, and local to

And for an even cheaper option, my Mum's gone to OzEmail for
just under $50/month and has been well satisfied, after moving
up from a dialup which was probably costing her nearly as much.

None of these prices include the ADSL router, mind you. Budget
another $100-$300 up front for that. If you're lucky, you can
get a second-hand one from a former ADSL user (eg. someone who
moved up to TransACT. That's where my Mum's came from).
