Broadband - the difference between the UK and NZ

I have recenlty returned to New Zealand from the UK. One major area of difference is the cost of braodband. In teh UK, braodband is cheap, over here it is expense. Look at the package BskyB is offering in the UK:

Its current offers in Britain include a 100-channel pay-TV bundle that includes a British Telecom phone line, free evening and weekend national toll calls and a fixed-line broadband connection with a 40 gigabyte traffic cap for £37 (NZ$93) a month.

I pay more than that in NZ, and I dont get pay TV, my datacap is only 10 gigabytes and the speed of the broadband is about 1/2 (and for upload about 1/8).
