Hello, I've recently switched isp's from sympatico to source cable here in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. I have been connected to source cable for about a month now and there have been no problems. Yesterday I noticed I was downloading very slowly at around 30/kilobytes a second. I called my isp and was told I downloaded 450/GB which is over their limit. They had switched me to their lite service for the time being. I'm going to call them again today to talk with a supervisor about being switched back to my regular high speed connection. I was wondering if it was illegal to download in Canada? and should I be worried about my isp contacting the authorites? If and when they switch me back to my connection I have to keep in the limit of 50/GB - 100/GB. My question: is there a free news server (speed doesn't matter) that will let me download DVD-R's. Also I was wondering if I am able to connect to a free server or purchase a news server account at giganews.com, newsdaemon.com or newshosting.com will the amount I download be tracked by my isp?
P.S. - Do you think would be possible to send a money order monthly to a news server for an account with them?
