It's okay, soon we'll have a new monopoly to whinge about: NBN Co.  ;)

The real problem here is the quotas on broadband connections, although
that is in part due to the cost of hauling almost all the data
half-way around the globe.

The even more horrendous problem, which is so pervasive it affects
everyone, is the insistence on asymmetric connections.  Even when
Australia does get this fabled fibre-to-the-home, it still won't be
symmetric.  *sigh*
