Using Steam in New Zealand

When I buy a game online, I expect to be able to download it as fast as my connection will allow. In New Zealand, living close to some sort of cabinet where proximity is supposed to mean faster connections, this means a standard download speed of ~500k/s.

Steam unfortunately has a standard download speed of ~50k/s.

However, it is a much cheaper way to buy games. I saved $23NZ buying it through Steam instead of through a local store.
