    I'd just like to know what your download limit is? how much you download and what? is it enough? i thought this might be an interesting topic

    i live in Australia and my download limit is 50gb a month 25 peak 25 offpeak im with TPG - ADSL 2+ $50 a month it goes around 200 - 700 KBs a sec, i just changed from Telstra Bigpond 12gb $70 a month (total rip because my dad chose it and hes a total noob). I'm forever downloading DS, Wii, PS2 Games and movies and i went over my $50 gb limit in half a month

    Im with AOL here in the UK. My speed isnt that fast, but adequate (3-4 mbit) as i cant get cable where i live. However, I have no download limit. I always look for a provider with unlimited access.

    As far as I know, there is no download limit on my internet connection. At least I've never gotten any warnings or anything.

    I have 400GB per 2 months. (it's actually 200GB/month, but my ISP functions with 2 months, so if I go over 200GB in one month I don't have to pay overusage if I don't go over 200GB in the next month [​IMG])

    in NZ I have 40gig download limit and 256kbit DL but I keep breaking the limit.

    then I went to Sweden for 3 months, stayed at a friends who had 30mbit UL & DL and downloaded about 500GB in a month.

    it's taking me time to get used to my 40gb limit ._.

    I pay for 8 mbits download and 512 kbs upload. I usually get around 7 mbits download and 430 kbs upload with no download limit! Not bad, though I used to get speeds of over 20 mbits in low traffic times, they have started limiting it much more [​IMG]
    I'm upgrading to 20 mbit download and 1 mbit upload next month so I'll see how that goes.

    20MBps, no download limit. Too bad I never manage to download at my top speed. I guess I'm capped server-side. With uTorrent, the max I got was 1MBps, which is really, really nice for torrents.

    WTF? I can't imagine that you download like 500GB in 1 freaking month!
    Dude, I can only download 36GB in a month, and it's never faster then 500kb/s....
    I can make it, my games get downloaded by other guys and they give it to me then.
    I'm mainly the music/movies downloader, while my friends are gamedownloaders [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure I have no limit... I mean, I download like at least a couple Gbs a day... so by the end of the month, it adds up. Especially now that I started burning 360 games... I've downloaded like 30 games so far, and each is around 6-7 Gbs... so yeah.

    Doesn't really matter for me, I don't download games/movies/music or whatever. I get 10MB's down, 1MB up and 100GB max, but I don't think I've ever used more then 30GB. I pay about $50.

    I can't get any faster where I live [​IMG] .
