I’m surprised to hear that part about your ISP’s own offerings not being included in the cap.I believe in Canada, that practice is illegal. If they are going to cap you they can’t discriminate their traffic or a competitors.
I’m on Rogers (until I get switched to TekSavvy).
They charge me past bandwidth caps (to a certain point, which I make sure I go way over so I’m paying less per overcap-gb when all’s said and done) and throttle my torrent speeds.Full 10mbit (1mbyte/sec) is easy to get off of an http stream, but my torrents rarely break 200k/s (until a couple weeks ago torrents weren’t throttled, and I regularly saw 700-800k/s torrent downloads)
