All the isps offer their plans on 12 month terms. Am I right in thinking these should be avoided because of regulation expected next year? Does anybody offer plans that either have no term, a shorter term or lenient exit conditions?

I tend to look at them as paying the connection fee + modem at a later date. Though I understands Xtras disconnection fee is around $90 which is quite low.

Both Xnet, and Slingshot do not have contract for new connections and transfers. Slingshot only impose the 12-month contract if you want their free modem. Also, ihug no longer have contract for new ADSL connections or transfers if you take up their home phone + calling as well, plus they also throw in a free modem for no contract at all.
