[Australia filter] Weirdness with Telstra connection in rented house

I'm trying to get a phone line and broadband set up in the house I'm renting. When the Telstra technician came round to set up the connection, he gave up and left without completing the order because it appears the phone sockets on the walls aren't connected to the line to crosses the boundary from the Telstra pit outside the property. WTF? [more inside]

When something seems too good to be true...

I am looking into an "unlimited" ADSL2 broadband service, offered by TPG in Australia. It seems like an unusually good deal - enough to make me suspicious that there's some kind of hidden catch. I was hoping someone would be able to confirm/refute my doubts. [more inside]

Trying to find a broadband checker site

I used to have a link to a very very detailed UK ADSL broadband checker - it gave lots of information about which broadband providers were enabled on each exchange, instead of just giving generic info about the quality of the line, as most of the checkers do. Of course, I've lost the link, and Google isn't helping. Does anyone know the site I'm talking about?

Will a 56k modem work well on a 256k ADSL connection?

I have ADSL. If ADSL is active and I hookup an old 56k modem to a filtered voice line, a) how fast would I be able to connect, and b) would it affect my 256k ADSL connection?
