Change ISPs then. IHUG offers 10GB and I think it's Orcon that offers
15GB.

I was using Xtra but have switched to IHUG because of this.

Jetstart/stream are words of propaganda.

ADSL, along with DSL are technical acronyms for two different types of
broadband service - one being high-speed both ways and the other being
high-speed one way only (the other being 56k modem speed).
