Save your energy and just move your web site to another host.
Don't be too impressed by extravagent bandwidth claims. In a shared
hosting environment, where servers are often grossly overloaded, you'll
either have very little chance of reaching those bandwidth numbers, or if
you do, you'll be asked to upgrade or close your account because of the
high processing load needed to push that much traffic.
