I have that bundle and now I sort of wish I didn't.  The video streaming is
nice but there are now probably better ways to achieve the same
functionality. e.g.  

	Digital set-top-box to replace TransTV.
	iinet bliink 1.5Mbit 15GB/15GB ADSL plan for $100
	Telstra telephone.

I'd do this except for the exit fine on the bundle.  It makes my
256Kbit 1.5GB/unlimited Transact/ACTEWAGL access look sick.  For the price
of a phone I'd get 6x bandwidth and 10x peak download.  Of course I'd then
have to deal with iinet's (non existant) support.
