When i lived back in the US, i was using Time Warner for a few months and would d/l on average about 80 gig's to 120 per month - this was back in '02. i only used their service for a few months because i got a notice in the mail that stated i was violating their Fair-Usage Policy which states that i will not exceed two gigabytes per MONTH. *lame* So, i quickly discontinued my service and a short time later i moved to Germany. Since then, i have never run across this problem again.
Now a day's i average about 780 gig's - 1.5Tb of content a month, depending on the weather outside.
My question is to those that live in the US: Do the ISP's over there still send out those letters to their customers, and if so, what are the guidelines? i've also read that Verizon is offering their customers FiOS which is suppose to offer their customers up to 30Mb/s down, but i'm curious how much of that i'm actually able to "use" per month?
