I live in the UK and ISPs are always capping how much you can download, i have 1 gig a day or something stupid. The odd thing is its not enforced unless you break it constantly. I also have a cable net connection which by the end of next year is being upgraded to a 10 gig line
. The only reason capping is happening is to stop illigal downloading.
But considering i download alot of pc demos some of which can be 500mb breaking my cap probably happens alot, but so far havnt been warned. Maybe the UK is just behind the rest of the world net wise and is catching up dont no about austrilia though.
