You guys seem to know what your talking about here so I was wondering what you can reccommend. I am moving into a new house and I am looking for the cheapest phone and broadband setup, I really dont want to have to pay $40 or so for a phone line just so I can pay $50 for my broadband. I was looking up the Woosh phone and broadband deals and they looked perfect for me but Ive heard a lot about how Woosh are not a great ISP and their service isnt up to scratch. Can you offer any advice? Id like 5Gb/m and at least 128kb uploads.

Try not to be biased either if possible, im after the best combined rates from an acceptable ISP.

If you are defintely not after a phoneline but want DSL, then I'd consider one of the naked DSL offerings that one of the other providers such as WorldxChange offer. Their offer is priced around $69.95 a month (remember you still pay for the phoneline, just not for voice services...).

Before committing, look around at your options and see which one fits you - particularly given that a lot of providers such as Woosh have minimum terms. You may wish to talk to them to see what the process is - as they might not be able to sign you up straight away - which would be a show stopper if you wanted it right now...
