I'm with AAPT. When I was comparing prices (about a year ago) they were
the cheapest, but be warned they are the cheap and nasty version. You
have to watch your bills (ie what they are charging you each month)
because their invoices are really confusing and they make mistakes. I'd
second Paul's vote for iinet, I think I'll go with them next time, or
I've also heared good things about Arachnet.
