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.
