    I just got a nice e-mail from my ISP. They think i generate a lot of data-traffic
    this month they measured 200 gig (till the 20st) 90gig upload and 110gig download.
    They say that's about the limit within their fair use and ask me to reduce the activities. This was the 1st time i reached 200gigs a normal month is about 170gigs

    Well that made me curious, how much gigs you all use (up and down) and if you ever had a message from the ISP? Now be honest

    I have a uploadlimit of 10gig but I easely cross that every month.
    Combined I have something in between 11-20gigs per month
    But my ISP won't complain about it because there's an option to buy 5gig packets for 5 euro.You can buy as much as you want and what remains of it at the end of the month you still get to use the month(s) after.If I don't buy an extra 5gig package my speed get's cut back to that of a 56k So i'ld rather spend the 5 euro's on an extra 5gig.
    The only message I get is when I cross it but they don't complain,they just advertise that I can buy a package

    if you are on a aup ( accepable user poloicy ) eg unlimited account , in the small print they have a right to cap or disconnet you if they think you have downloaded too much

    i agree 200 gig is a lot and maybe they are right to warn you

    btw , 200 gig is a huge amount and you must be downloading 24/7


    i think you must be fairly new to downloading , as once you get over your initial surge in downloading everything you can get your hands on, you will find it will decrease and in the end maybe 30 to 40 gig a month is all you use

    hey if you share all this download u get then good on you but man , choose what u download , and make it good stuff, not crap

    if you get chopped or capped then its your own fault, play within reason


    just a tip from me lol

    I've only just got a 2 meg connection but so far this month I've had a combined data-traffic of 130 gb (80 down 50 up). So I'd say it'll probably end up on 170 gb this month.

    I have no cap from my ISP but I wonder how long it will be until I do get a letter...(I'm with Blueyonder).

    No i'm not. just have a pretty fast connection (7800kb down 1024kb up)

    i think you must be fairly new to downloading , as once you get over your initial surge in downloading everything you can get your hands on, you will find it will decrease and in the end maybe 30 to 40 gig a month is all you use
    this one is funny to me. No i think i'm around since somewhere in the eighties

    100 gig down isn't much anymore. A dvd rip is between 4 and 8gig a dvd rip from a game is like 3gig. So with 10 movies, 5 games and some music i reach the 100gigs down pretty easy.
    but i guess you're right in one way
    choose what u download , and make it good stuff, not crap
    maybe i just got to go back and dl divx avi's instead of the dvd rips , will help me keep out of troubles

    I used to have about 30gig combined transfers but since I got my new connection this went up. Untill now I have dl&ul 44GB I think I will have something between 50 - 60 by the end of the month

    You Better Keep In Mind That I Can Read Between The Lines

    It's not totally accurate because this past month I haven't had it opened.

    hmmm, cant vote cause i never really tallied a monthly figure
    but when i had emule running it was pretty common to upload 4-5 gigs per day
    (on a simple cable connection)
    downloads....well....hard to say, cause i didnt d/l 24/7

    never got a notice from my ISP, but then i dont have jetje's speed
    (with that kind of speed i would get notified within a day)
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
