A technique that has been reported to work for some people is as follows.
Ask for your line to be "upgraded" to ISDN. That forces telstra to 
install straight copper. Then after 3 months or whatever the minimum 
contract period is, cancel the ISDN and ask for adsl.

Obviously there are no guarantee's. But supposedly it can work.
