Check it out on Slashdot here.

"Well as it seem's Telstra, Australia's telephone monopoly has finally been recognized as one, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commision (ACCC) has forced Telstra to grant full local loop access to it's competitor's and to bring extensive testing to a halt and begin the mainstream ADSL rollout by August at the latest. If you don't live in Australia, Telstra is the only reason we're all stuck to poor modem speeds, Telstra owns all exchanges in Australia and is privatised and thus wouldn't open them to other companies so they could install the relevant ADSL equipment."

This might be something big - bring it on!
