I guess I'm an idealist in thinking data transfer should/could/was "free" within NZ.
I'm unsure of what happens if I don't do anything, will my ADSL be switched off? and my VFX?

Last year Xnet launched a series of new broadband plans called HSI Stream, HSI River and HSI Flood. The pricing comes in two parts:
- An Access charge for each
- A standardised Usage charge per megabyte
With Internet usage profiles changing, Xnet are now launching a new Usage price option.
Customers can continue to pay $1.02 per Gigabyte 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with their chosen access: or they can opt for a new usage price where you pay $1.54 per Gigabyte from 8am to midnight (which is the peak period) and from midnight to 8am you can download up to 75 GB per calender month data free of charge.
The new option will appeal to heavy internet users who wish to download their content at night and use it at their leisure. Customers who download more than 75 Gigabytes per calender month will then be charged $2.56 per Gigabyte for all off-peak traffic over that amount.
The reason you are receiving this correspondence is to notify you that the old Xnet broadband plans offering free national traffic which include Xnet Xpress, Xtreme, Xstream Lite, Xtream Plus and Xtream HSI will be discontinued. This being the case we would like to give you plenty of time to decide which new Xnet product you would like to move to. For many, the new plans on offer will actually save you money.
Your current Xnet broadband plan will not operate after 30 June 2008. You can quickly choose and set up your new plan before then without any service interruption by visiting www.xnet.co.nz/accounts, or by visiting www.xnet.co.nz, navigating to My Stuff and logging into the Customer Account Manager - where your Account Manager Portal resides.
Your login (email@example.com) and password for the Account Manager were sent to you when you joined Xnet. If you have forgotten or lost your login name and password, you can call our helpdesk on 0800 14 XNET (0800 14 9638).
Again, please remember to choose a new plan that is right for you. Your plan can be changed at any time. Your current service will not operate after midnight June 30th 2008.
