re ADSL its not ADSL, i think it's VDSL or something.

they provide a modem if you get the i3 set top box, or else theres a 
modem included in the Motorola set top box.

re. masquerading That would be a matter between you and your i.s.p.

ActewAGL is cheap, but at least once upon a time they had a (rather 
interesting) clause to the effect that 'servers of all kinds' are 
prohibited (which i can only assume to mean everything from an ssh 
daemon to a freenet node).

As far as I've noticed none of the others have any problem with LANs and 

I went with velocity.  Very good so far.

Transact have a dedicated senate committees channel on their TV service 


I suspect theres cheaper broadband around than Transact...

...but with the phone and TV and all, its a tricky comparison.
