The Australian ISP List - This is one of the best sites I
have found for searching for an internet provider. They have a
search box on their main page. You can enter your phone number,
and the results page lists those ISP's that are a local call for
you. I would still recommend double checking with your phone
company before you actually sign up, just to be on the safe
side. Telstra - 12552 Optus - 1300 300 937
AAPT - 1300 651 414 or try Telstra's call
