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 cost calculator.
