Not sure about Optus, but Telstra and Internode allow its users to run their own virtual servers.

Edit: This should answer your question, http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1150507

I remember looking through the terms of service and acceptable usage policies a couple of years ago and I couldn't find anything.

That said, Optus horribly restrict upload speeds (and uploads seem to take priority over downloads, one upload can bring my home connection to a screeching halt) so I don't think it'll be effective as a server.

Even with my Internode account I can only achieve 85KBps, I'm soon gonna be buying a wireless gateway from Telstra, where I can achieve 3Mbps or 300KBps. That should be enough for what I do.

That's pretty good going. I'm on Optus Cable and I only get 512Kbit up (64KBps) :(

I could go with Asymmetric ADSL, where I could get 10MBps up/down. But its intended for business and even if i did subscribed for it, I could be up for a several hundred dollars. Not cheap!

In addition, you also need a router/modem that supports Asymmetric ADSL, which would also cost a couple of hundred dollars.

sorry for the little detail but ADSL stands for Asymmetric dsl, and in you're case 10 up and down isn't really asymmetric.

Because adsl is full-duplex,the name comes from that originally the channels ( frequencies) reserved for download is a higher proportion then the upload part.

Sorry I meant symmetric DSL!
