Huh that'd be nice if all the ISP's offering steam servers could do that but then when have we ever seen multiple ISP's getting together to benifit all customers for anything

In Aussie the ISP's actually worked together to un-metered each others servers, would be great if you guys could get together and do the same here.

It's probably much cheaper than the cost of dealing with all the "my steam downloads weren't un-metered" support calls!

Absolutely, however for Orcon it's more of a technical limitation than a cost thing.  
Just down to how the O-Zone data gets counted, it's not possible to zero-rate every Steam server available, or even the ones close by.

However we are working on mitigating that limitation, and once that's done, adding other Steam servers will be first on the list of things to do.

So is there any list of games that the content server has? Surprisingly lots of older games don't seem to be on the content server.
