[LINK] Tesltra Home Budget Line and ADSL

I am planning to move to a new location and use an ISP that does
not provide phone + ADSL bundled.
A reasonable option would be to pay for the most basic landline
service from Telstra, Homeline Budget (HLB):
"8. Only one fixed line per customer. You must agree not to
acquire services from other carriage service providers by
dialing their access override code and must not acquire a
broadband service from another service provider which is
provided using line sharing technology."
A Telstra retail consultant points out that this clause is counter
to the concept of *operation separation* to which Telstra must abide.
So, in a nutshell, can I purchase the HLB plan and then get ADSL1
from a budget ISP? (ADSL2 is not available in the area I am moving to ... sigh)
Or if anyone has pointers on how to minimise the cost of a phone line from
one provider and cheap ADSL1 from another, I am all ears. I *have* investigated
phone+ADSL1 bundles but they seem more expensive.
