Talking to a friend (who lives in Macquarie, I was told that this upcoming
service is not the usual TransAct cable, but an ADSL based service. He
mentiones "TransAct 2" as a reference to the service. The suggestion was
that a high bw ADSL service delivers one TV channel (the one you select)
only, then a net connection and (I think) a phone service.

Remember that ADSL is specified as 6MB, so the above story is doable.
Anyone knows what the real story is?
