20gb users got nothing either, would have been nice to be bumped to 25gb or something.

I'd happly exchange 10Mbit for 512kbit, free local traffic and 1/10 national traffic, just like the good ol' days.
If only Telecom's network didn't suck so much, I'd go back to Xnet naked DSL.
Can anyone tell me the name of the ISP that resells Telstra cable? I remember many Wellington direct connect (P2P) users switched to that ISP, and they were supposedly going to expand to Chch too. Do they still exist?

With cabinetisation Telecom's network has gigabit ethernet backhaul with a much higher CIR now.  Besides I think you'll find that Xnet's international capacity was the real problem (and still is).

Probably xtreme, they resell cable with unlimited national traffic.

Xtreme also resell other interesting things like citylink and telecom euba.
