    Your isp is retarded, why would they regulate bandwidth instead of time? prevent pirating?

    I am sure your ISP has some sort of way that you can check how much you've used each week. . .if it appears your using up your limit too fast then turn off Wii's Connect24 feature.

    I've never heard of a broadband company limiting bandwith. . .maybe a dial-up company limiting time, but never bandwidth.

    Like Comcasts bullshit. They say you get unlimited internet usage but if you use it alot they will call you and tell you that you have to dramatically decrease your internet usage because you are violating the acceptable use policy. Then they will tell you that there is no cap on how much you can use it and will give you no idea how much you need to decrease your usage by except "dramatically". Then the bastards cut off your internet service, and flag your account so that your screwed and don't have internet for 12 months.

    I thought it was pretty standard. At one point, and maybe they still do, but my ISP would basically cut your BW in half after you transfer so much data in a 24 hour period. Something like 4GB. You'd then lose half of your BW for 24 hours. It sucks when you're downloading the latest Linux distro and updates.

    Your internet sucks ass if they do that. I usually use 4GB in one day.

    Preaching to the choir! It's he ONLY option I have though. DSL isn't available and the wireless options are slow.

    Limiting bandwith is becoming the norm in the uk.. 8meg broadband came to us last year and my isp limit people to 50gig or 20gig a month depending which package you go with..
    They do have a way to check how much ive used but its a lot of messing around
    i have to go to there home page click the portal sign in the click to continue then goto my orders then click the details on my order then go to another page to see how much ive used...
    Luckly im still on 2meg and get 100gig a month but i'll end up using most of that with mymain pc.. But i'll see how i go with connect24 on next month thats when i get my usage limit so no more downloading 200gig a month for me
