No worries Jig, contracts are a bugger mate(shows a lack of confidence the company has in it's service imho)Westnet don't have them because they have the confidence that people will stay with them because they have a great service. I suggest when your contract runs out that you look around at other options.

jig go with westnet.com.au there pricing is very competitive and the off peak is 10pm to 10am which is better than TPG.

Here in the UK they might not restrict the amount you download - if you're on an unlimited connection - but they can restrict your connection speed by over 10 times during peak hours which can be equallly bad. They have a kind of a "black list", and if you happen to download "too much" - in the excess of 60 gb/month or less ( not really that much after all ) they can place you in that list and then you will experience 400k/sec connection speeds during peak hours which is not enough even for a normal stream - like the ones offered by betlivetv.
I managed to get myself out of the black list list and I'm doing well for now - over 6 mbit and it's peak time right now. But you never know when they will put you back into the list.
So you not only need a provider that offers unlimited downloads but also no restriction on speed.

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).

Re: Do you watch Live Streaming on the Internet?

The only sport i watch online is tennis when its not on t.v over here usually the crap events in the calander,and i usually watch that through the williamhill video or betfaif live video-both are pretty good, so i'm no expert i'm affraid, were lucky over here we have sky sports that gives us all our football and other european leagues e.g spanish and sky sports also does tennis.rugby,cricket etc etc...

Sky sports do all the masters series events in the tennis which is great along with most of the grand slams apart from wimbledon which is on our BBC, i think its fair to say were sport mad over here but i know you lot are to..

4-9am when your asleep aint helping you what a joke

i'm sure some people must know of some better streams for you...
