Hmm, thanks for the warnings Brad and Paul .... I'd prefer to keep ADSL
then, if I can.

I'm assuming I'll have to change from Westnet to E-Wire as well, then.

Just looking at E-wire's plans the maximum they offer is 2,000Kbps,
which is not too great either.

Gonna have to phone Westnet sales to find out about ADSL in Somerley.
