Yep, if I wanted to buy any service from this company ::cough:: Internode ::cough:: I was required to give up rights for this supposed guarantee for voice communications. I did it of course because there really are no longer rights for voice service because of the information in this article. So companies are doing belts and braces to be sure you understand and AGREE to give up those "rights" that are no longer rights. I wonder what the ACCC thinks about this? Hey, Checkout, this is one for you!

Telstra has been doing the same with NGWL (when they either don't 
provide a physical cable or allow the existing one to degrade beyond 
usability, then offer wireless instead) for some time.

If you're on NBN/VoIP, then you'd better not want to move:
