I watch to much and download too much.

Come on out with it, share your feedback.
I think your problem is that because you are in Australia, your Internet Service Provider places restrictions on the amount of internet bandwidth/download amount you are allowed to use. ISPs in Australia probably pay a lot more for connections to the rest of the world.

In Europe and North America, bandwidth is much cheaper, and most stream servers are located not that far away with good connections, so there are actually very few ISPs that restrict the amount you download. Basic streams don't even take up that much bandwidth compared to the max download speed that is offered (several megabit/s).
