This has been discussed at length.  As far as I know WxC is the only ISP that acts on the notification from I think a US based watchdog, but I do not know much about it as I do not download copyrighted movies.  You should be able to find a post on this without too much trouble.

I think you'll find with the incoming Copyright (New Technologies) Amendment in Feb that more and more service providers will be taking action against their customers.

As for nDSL providers, I can only think of Slingshot

Won't matter what ISP you go with because from February next year every ISP will be acting on these letters because it's the law. If you download copyrighted material and get caught you will lose your internet connection. End of story.

This has been discussed many times before and we have decided to lock threads that are related to this kind of activities.

Please read Sbiddle's reply - things are changing.
