    You have to switch your phone to Telstraclear ..

    " customers on Telecom JetStream TM high speed internet services can
    now switch to TelstraClear HighSpeed Internet. This offer is currently only
    available to existing customers using Telecom JetStream TM high
    speed internet services.

    As part of switching to TelstraClear HighSpeed Internet you will also be
    agreeing to transfer your home phone line rental and national, international and
    home to mobile calling to us. Your home phone line will be switched to
    TelstraClear when we can provided you with this service and will be at a
    separate monthly charge in additional to your monthly HighSpeed charge. Your
    home phone line rental and HighSpeed charges will be on the same bill."

    As there is no number portability it means you need to drop your Telecom number.

    I logged into Paradise page and filled out the questionaire and ..

    TelstraClear HighSpeed Internet

    "Unfortunately we are unable to provide you with TelstraClear HighSpeed
    Internet, because you have the following Telecom products:

    Call Track, Toll Bar
    If at any time you are no longer taking these products, please don't hesitate to
    contact us if you wish to take up TelstraClear HighSpeed Internet."

    I don't wish to change my number so unless I get a 2nd line I guess I am

  4. Where are you reading that Col? I called them about it and they claimed that
    it was only available to business customers. When I asked them for a
    business line into my house they basically said that Telecom would not allow

    The link was on their main home page. It seems to have disappeared
    now. This broadband stuff changes every 5 minutes but my application
    is already in.

    How about a home based business ? You would think that Telecom would
    want you to have one installed for the extra revenue from a business as
    opposed to home line. Weird. Still it is telecom afterall.
