Wanted: ISP

[Tech] So Telstra says no way no how can I get ADSL in this apartment, so I'm shopping for a new dial-up provider.

Criteria:
- cheap;
- some web hosting space;
- an e-mail account;
- unlimited hours;
- unlimited data; and
- decent support (not that I really need it, but good to know it's there if something stuffs up).

Any recommendations or warnings in comments please. Cheers!

What excuse did Telstra give as to why you can't get ADSL?
I have just found out I am on a pair-gain line, which means I can't get ADSL unless they move it.
As for dial-ups, I think Optusnet are really good, especially bundled with phone (50 or 100 free local calls). They never drop out. Never engaged. But I think most dial-ups would be the same now-a-days..

They said I was on a pair-gain line, so I ordered the line transposition but it wasn't successful. The only broadband I'm able to get now is satellite or I'll just have to wait until wireless comes online and drops in price.

I've been with iPrimus for a while and they don't seem to be bad. Unlimited hours but with a 4 hour cutoff although I think you can stay on for longer if it's not busy.

Only had to ring the support once or twice to find out settings or phone numbers and they seemed fine.

If the transposition was unsuccessful. Try again. And Again...and again.
Sooner or later, it will work.
Or just make up a story about how you need it for work or something...
