We've been with Telstra for the last 4 years, but their pricing is getting a bit tedious.

We're using about 20 gigs a month, don't really need a landline, and run 3 mobiles.

Anyone got any recommendations?

if you don't need a landline, coach, you could have a look at Woosh's wireless option. On their homepage you type in your street address to see if you can get their signal. And at least one of their wireless plan's allow a non-phone option.

They recently won a 'best provider' award, too.

Woosh are crap, crappy speed, crappy signal, plus they're touch n go most of the time as a business, rely  on government subsidies to stay in the market place at one stage because they were the only ones supplying a wireless connection. They couldn't even financially maintain a small physical office in Chch for more than three months.
