ADSL: 30GB Local Bandwidth and Cap Changes

What's going on with Telkom's ADSL capping strategy? I've noticed some interesting changes:

1. Not capped, but over the standard 3 GB usage limit.
2. Local bandwidth is measured separately and capped at a whopping 30 GB.

Is Neotel forcing innovation in the Telkom camp?
