I'm probably missing something here. I am currently using Telstra clear cable which is giving me lots of issues. But the issue is resolved - we have sold the house and are moving.

With the issues with TCL I want to go back to adsl2+ (in Wellington) - and don't require a landline - I have skypeIN

BUT when I checked out the neconnections wiki - it seems that the providers offering naked dsl seem to assume that I alraedy have a telstra or telecom a/c - which obviously I won't have

I want a  provider that will just provide me with fast adsl2+ internet ONLY  (no phone, no TV  no dialup ) - is that impossible here?

Sounds like you want naked DSL. I was able to switch from TelstraClear DSL + phone line to WorldXChange naked DSL directly. This was in December 2008. Not quite the same situation as you are in, but not totally unrelated. Which company are you dealing with?

Shouldn't be an issue with Maxnet, at least it wasn't a year ago when I signed up with them. I just needed to give them my address and they took care of the rest.

My situation was similar. I was using a wireless internet provider and didn't have an active landline.

Slingshot don't have the processes or facilities in place to do the new connection provisioning work themselves so they require a telecom account.

However with Maxnet or Xnet you should be able to ring up say I'm moving in to x address on y date (or I've just moved in to x address) and would like a new naked ADSL connection.
