1,000 MB.

The name given to an incorrect measurement of the GigaByte.

Named after Ziggy Switkowski, CEO of Telstra (at the time), which held a large Telecommunications monopoly in Australia.

The Ziggybyte for some was the last straw for (then) inadequate broadband pricing.
I can't afford more than the 3 ziggybyte plan.

The incorrect definition given to a Gigabyte, namely that 1GB = 1000MB (instead of the actual value of 1024MB). Origin: Australia (term coined by Mr Sam).
Your plan includes 6ZB (ziggybytes) worth of downloads.
