Until I fell for the Telstra Bigpond ADSL crap, I used Goldweb they have 
Traffic and Time based plans[1].

The only problems I've ever had were setting up with a new modem.  Just 
before I switched to ADSL,  I was happy enough with the 120Mb plan, 
except for the usual problems with latency due to modem connections and 
the international link and all.  They're pretty heavily loaded, so 
during "peak hours" they cut you off at 2 hours.  Goldweb was more than 
enough for when all I was doing was email and casual web surfing.

Their upstream last time I checked was Telstra.
