^^If I was to search this exact subject tomorrow, it would probably come up with this exact thread, with you exact answer, which is no help at all.

To save you having to do all that searching, simple answer is Maxnet Unlimited DSL $99/month.

We do naked unlimited DSL for $90 which comes with a free VOIP line with 500 minutes to use.

We can do unlimited with a dedicated phoneline for $111 a month.

+1 for slingshot.
Use it at home with the flatmates who go through -alot- of data.

Torrent and http caching work real well.

As an aside ... is there a particular reason why NDSL costs $25 extra on Maxnet? Seems strange.

Back to the topic - in my experience, Slingshot unlimited is ok but offshore streaming can be disappointing at peak times.

Snap offer unlimited off peak data for capped (and hopefully less traffic managed) plans.

$25 more than what?

I'm guessing you're asking why a naked DSL plan costs $25 more than a clothed DSL plan - to which the answer is that somebody has to pay for the copper MPF so if you don't have a POTS like this forms part of the naked DSL cost.

You aren't from offroadexpress are you?

Anyway... Snap would be my choice. Get the naked ADSL plan for $70/month. That comes with 50GB standard. Then you add 100GB for just $10 and with that 100GB you will get unlimited nights (1am-7am) so all the torrenting can be scheduled then.
Plus you have 150GB to use anyway so data shouldnt be an issue. Plus you will actually good a good connection all hours of the day unlike other ISPs who slow down at peak times.
