Is it possible to have an internet connection without having an active phone line in Christchurch? My Sister-in-law wants to ditch her home phone with Telecom but still have an internet connection. Any way she can do that?

She'll be using this on her laptop so maybe something like the Vodem or T-Stick? any other alternatives?

So does she want:
  • Naked DSL - where a phone line is required but no active phone service is run over it
    - OR -
  • Wireless / Mobile internet - where no phone line is required at all?

Probably Naked DSL. Which ISP's offer it?
