I'm with Telecom, and haven't been trying Steam, but I know there are a few other sites that I have that problem with, and work with a proxy.

Its a DNS issue with a few NZ ISPs if you add the below to your hosts file it works.

68.142.123.239 cdn.store.steampowered.com
208.111.159.58 cdn.steampowered.com
