need new ISP...

I need to organize a new deal for my house here in cremorne, Melbourne. for the last year the house has used an optus naked dsl package, $60 for 30GB. But that deal is now coming to an end. I have spoken with a fair few providers and though netspace seemed the best deal, they told me they couldn't cover my area, which is strange given the fact that I live within 4km of the epicentre of Melbourne...

Now...I am eager for advice and suggestions for services I can head towards, for presently, I see iinet as the best option, with a hefty, horrible $150 set up fee and thereafter a $70 per month for 60gb package.

I should add...that I will have the modem and wireless router from the optus package to play with, if possible to combine this with a new deal.

Other information...I am prepared to pay for a $30 line rental per month is the overall cost will be less than the 150 setup fee then 70 per month for 60gb naked dsl package...

ALL help is greatly appreciated.

I have absolutely no knowledge of ISP's outside of Belgium, but i'd figure getting an unlimited package must be doable right ? Since this will be a line used by what, four different people?

I was with Optus and they were by far the best i have experienced.
Telstra is very poor with a lot of drop outs and uploads count as downloads.
IInet i believe have very very strict monitoring procedures... however i dont think they can prosecute.
TPG is who i am with now... It is ok... However i did have an email forwarded to me from LionsGate films
regarding movie downloading.
There are a few others... DODO.. AAPT among others....
I would stick to Optus if possible... Or look at TPG
