My understanding is that transposition is a Telstra fancy name for finding 
another connection route.

If you friend is on a pair gain line they may well be connected to a RIM. Some 
RIMs are ADSL enabled, but not all. ADSL work best on a dedicated copper line 
all the way from the exchange to your house, I imagine Telstra are trying to 
find a spare copper pair for your friend to use.

All my experiences with pair gain lines have been bad, even with dial-up modems.

Is there cable in the area? This may be the best alternative.
