    DotW - 1GB?!?! That's it? Geeze, I've been downloading like crazy since I got my new computer...Netfilx isn't helping either as I've been wtaching several of the movies they offer via download. The fancy bandwidth monitor I have say's I've used just over 9.5GB since April 1st...and we still have 17 more days of this month.

    Long story short - you need a new ISP. If my ISP tried to limit my internet usage, I'd switch in a heartbeat...that's just not cool. :rolling:

    And I thought my 20/10 GB limit was small (download / upload). I pity you...

    Trust me when I say it's not because I'm with this ISP that I like it. They failed to tell me I needed to give a 30 day forewarning if I wanted to cancel, so I tried to get this pathetic connection canned a few days before the end of the contract... only to be told since I didn't gave the damn 30 days forewarning, the contract auto-renewed. :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    I could pay their stupid resilitation fee and give them the finger, but the damn fee would burn a rather spectacular hole in my budget - and let's just say cash is a tight issue.

    Wow...you're stuck in a contract too? Ouch.

    Is that sort of thing common in the frozen north? :hmm:

    My ISP has no bandwidth limit, no contracts, my price is set for life, and if I ever get any of their other services (satellite, home phone, and cell phone) they give me discounts for each service that I add...I also get free McAfee Virus protection and SpySweeper for the life of my service. :D

    The only thing that sucks is that the fastest speed available in my area is 1.5Mbps. They have a 5Mbps service...but they told me there isn't a timeframe for when my area will get it....which means never. :bad: :rolling:

    Not where I'm living. We (my husband mostly) do an intense amount of downloading stuff and we have never been told that we have reached any limit.

    On a good day, my connection is 56K. (At least i think it is, since it downloads 1MB every 3 minutes or so.)
    On a bad, I'm lucky to get the computer to upload pages with more than a few pictures on them.

    Today is a good day.

    The DNS server in the building is down, but I just used OpenDNS instead, and I can browse the net again! Yay!

    Nope. They were my provider back when I was using 56K internet, and they offered me a deal for DSL. Didn't thought much of it back then, but nowadays, having to ask my friends to download me stuff drives me insane.

    Taking a closer look at my damn ISP's website, I appearantly have a total of 2GB bandwidth for both upload and downloads. You can bet your ass the 56K can go F itself.

    So much faster... 56K internet connections should come with a gun so one can kill him/herself because of the absolutely snail-like speed.
