    Last that i recall.. bandwidth is the speed of the internet connection, not the amount of internet traffic that you get for a month.
    I have bandwidth(speed) of 10240/768 Kbps, and traffic limit of 40GB a month(9 euros).

    Bandwidth can also be calculated for the amount you use in a month so it applys.

    Technically it is unlimited. Practically speaking my user agreement says it can be capped if my ISP feels I'm using too much. What constitutes too much is undefined.

    Sympatico, 60GB combined - on the plus side you get tech support from a country that they do no business in and generates none of their income.

    Unlimited

    But a person can still only download so much in a month.

  9. Unlimited monthly allowance. 10Mbits but traffic management reduces download and/or upload speed to about 25% for a number of hours if you go over daily usage limits.

  10. Unlimited, and if I remember the literature correctly 50Mbits down stream and 20Mbits upstream on Verizon FIOS, NJ/NY.

  12. I get unlimited, since my ISP does not enforce its posted limits. I rather like it this way.

    No limits on bandwidth, but the throughput is is maxed out at 2Mb/s down and 1Mb/s up. Not very fast, IMO.

    I have no idea.

    I have comcast internet in lower Michigan. I think I'm around 5mb/s down, I don't know what my upload is.

    However I have no complaints about speed. I watched the GREEN HORNET on VUDU on my ps3 last weekend in 720p with 5.1 sound and had 0 buffering issues - wired lan of course.

    I have also been watching a lot of streaming netflix on my xbox 360 and ps3 with no buffering issues. I'm happy.

  16. I have comcast and the silly 250gb limit. Downloading speed is supposed to be "up to 15mbs", which is ~15,000 kb. It seems they throttle torrents and any other type of download.

    I had to get a small seedbox to avoid the silly cap. However when I download a file via FTP from the seedbox, they throttle that down to about 70 kb, and on a bad day the download rate will be throttled to about 16 kb. However I found with bitkinex ftp program, I could have multiple logins to my ftp, and I have it download each file into 12 simultaneous downloads. This usually gives me about 850 kb speed, which is something I can tolerate.

    How can you advertise high download speeds then throttle it down to a snails pace, 24 hours a day? At least I have found a way to live with it!

  17. As far as I can tell I have an unlimited quota (no monthly cap). I pay for 12 Mb/s download and 1.5 Mb/s upload. Speetest.net usually shows about 25 Mb/s download, 6 Mb/s upload.
