Would be grateful for advice re broadband and phone connection/voip as been getting mixed messages.
We would be moving into our own home in wellington very shortly and would like to establish a broadband connection asap.I have been told that we would first need to establish a 'telecom' connection to make the line active which would be needed to start the broadband which would mean telecom line rental.We were interested in Voip/n-dsl for its obvious low toll rates etc.Is this true? or is there an option of starting a telephone connection/line rental and broadband/voip/n-dsl with one company right from scratch.(I believe the people already staying there have a telecom number).Telstra does not have their cable connection where we are moving to,so it has to be adsl. (not keen on wireless just yet) I have looked at many isp's websites and reasearched these forums,do people have any views on who would be ideal for our needs.We are not too keen on sky tv etc and do not tend to make many phone calls outside the local calling area(atleast for now)
any advice most gratefully received
