Thanks for letting me know @cf4 - it looks like there was an issue with the link, but it should be sorted now Smiley Happy

@ashliem this sounds great. But we have Bigpond cable until NBN is connected in a few months. Does it work for cable if using a Smart Modem Gen 2? If so, how can we arrange for someone to sell this service to me? My calls to Telstra are hung up on, and 24/7 chat doesn't work. Don't want a new contract just yet...

Yes. If your old modem is not a Telstra Smart modem Gen 1.1 (DJSO230) or a Telstra Smart modem Gen 2 (LH1000 or DJA0231) disconnect old modem and replace with the new Gen 2 modem.
