That's right. With iiNet you waive the CSG - Customer Service Guarantee.
Basically it means that you realise and accept that the service doesn't
offer the same availability guarantees that Telstra does. Mind you, a
lot of people use mains-powered phones in their houses these days which
means of course, that if the power to the house goes, so does their
phone service.

As Brad says "horses for courses".

I've found the Naked DSL package to meet what I need, and the monthly
bill for voice calls is almost zero (the odd call to mobile or 13xx
numbers) in spite of being on the phone for a few hours a month. For me
that works. And the quotas are large enough for me not to have to worry.
