Thread: My Isp Told Me To Stop Sharing!

  1. #1
    My ISP called me the other day concerning my high-speed internet. I spoke to a rep and she said that my dl/ul were unusally high for a residential connection.
    I just got high speed in Oct. so I was itchin for dowloadin....Oct- 22gb dl/ul(kazaa lite only)....Nov- 57gb dl/ul ( BT and kazaa lite). She said that if I was using any kind of filesharing program, that I should turn of the sharing...also saying that apprx 22gb was an okay amount per month, but it was still in the high dl's. I asked if this was common and she said no its with that being said what should I do???

    There must be a download and upload capacity set on your account. If there isnt then talk to your ISP. Btw, What the hell do you download?

    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.

    I hit 45 gigs down and 35 up the first month I started using bittorrent. I went crazy,downloading at a steady 500kb/s and uploading at around 200-250 kb/s for about 10 days. Needless to say my ISP tried to cap me that month. I threatened to take my business elseware as they had nothing in writing saying that I had any type of limit and they reconnected me.I have since slowed down quite alot as I have pretty much downloaded everything I am interested in.
