Default Higher TL jump

What happens to jump rating as the TL gets higher? Do you get Jump-7 with TL 16 or TL 17? And then Jump-8, etc., etc.? How quickly do they go up?

Or would they use a different system altogether? For a society spread through an entire galaxy to use Jump-6 or anything near would be extremely impractical... it'd take a few centuries to get from one end to another, if not millenia. Entire Charted Space-sized chunks of territory could get conquered and the core worlds wouldn't know until three hundred years later... and then the support troops would take another three hundred years to arrive.

One idea I've had is "HyperJump". A HyperJump drive is something that can be fitted on a normal jump drive. The drive's rating remains the same, but it only spends one day in jumpspace, travelling the same distance. This could make a Jump-1 ship faster than a normal Jump-6 (though still less practical). A HyperJump-6 ship would have the equivalent of Jump-42.
But even this can only get you so far with Jump-6 drives...

Any ideas on higher TL interstellar transport?
