Hey all. I'm new and all and I LOVE sharing the files I get to everyone I can. Even though I only have a 30/kb sec upload speed, It's still a lot when I leave it on all night. Anyway, I heard my ISP is going to LIMIT my upload each month. So I can only have around 50 GB of Upload a month. Cox HSI is really starting to piss me off. I want to find a way around this, but I know it's not possible. So I guess I'll have to share until my upload bandwidth runs out. :(

Hmm... there HAS to be a way to bypass this. I wish there was.

I'm pretty sure there's a way to fix your upload speed, but it's very illegal. I think it's called uncapping or something to that effect. If you're desperate you could resort to that.

I think I heard about it on this forum when people were trying to increase their download speeds because of ISP restrictions. I was contemplating doing it, then figure there was too much at stake. I think it's a pretty serious crime, Federal Prison perhaps, I'm not positive though.

you think a 50 GB limit is bad? My isp limits my overall traffic to 10 GB/month...

:D No CAPs here.Just Download and UPload all day long. :D

A GB a day is still not bad lets say if they limit it to 30 GB a Month.Thats still alot of Music for what you Pay your ISP.But 10 GB for a whole Month...that sucks. :(

I mean it is possible to get unmlimited here but what Ive heard those ISPs suck shit in terms of blocking certain ports so can be dodgy

no enforced caps for me... yet :)
on my ISP&#39;s website it says 5gb upload/download limit. but that rule was created when the ISP was founded (at least the broadband part) when there was not much content. they never enforce the rule so i can download as much.. but i dont go overboard because if everyone did they certanly would start capping and enforcing the caps just like Bell Sympatico..
