A good Idea for a business would be to get a 99% guaranteed uptime ADSL
service, that makes a failover modem unnecessary.
BTW. Telstra (and therefore their resellers) have stopped (until they sort
our their network problems) the installation of new ADSL connections.

consider pacific adsl - they include as part of their adsl a backup
56k modem exactly as you describe for the situations you describe.
I also believe they notify you of problems and "switch" your
static IP over to the modem etc when the adsl has problems.
Have a look at http://www.pacific.net.au/adsl.
Note: I don't know what their service is actually like and aren't
a customer etc (or get any kickbacks) but it seems like a good
idea for a business.
