Is there any software for mac that will split your local and international bandwidth?
Something simular to Route Sentry
"Route Sentry is specially designed for South Africans who want to make use of 2 ADSL accounts on the same PC at the same time, with the one account being used for local access only and the other for international. Most people are put off using such a setup due to the inconvenience of having to manually set up the IP routing tables after each new connection (due to ISP's allocating dynamic IP addresses). Route Sentry makes it easy.

It will monitor your 2 connections and automatically route South African traffic through the “local” account while directing all other traffic through the “international” account. It will automatically reconnect if either connection is dropped (which at the moment happens at least once every 24 hrs) and keep traffic flowing through the correct connections even if the IP addresses are changed after reconnecting."

I don't have a Mac at the moment, but if it's anything like other UNIX derivatives, there should be a hook somewhere for running a script every time dhcp refreshes. I have exactly that running on my Debian box at work. Automater can probably do this too.
