I accidentally selected 0-1 Gbps, but I believe it's unlimited for me too, I use Verizon DSL, the only for me is that my highest with Internet Download Manager is around 390 Kbps

My upcoming 3000/500 has 30GB/month cap, reduced speed (whew, they no longer bill by extra megabyte!). No peak-like caps. My current dial-up has no cap of course.

Had to be 6000/500/60GB, but I'm broke...

What really pises me off is that some isps say that there service is ''unlimited'', but they say about a ''fair usage policy''. I watched a TV show last night, and they happened to be doing a campaign about all of this, and they interviewed a representetive at o2, and the person said something about imagine it beign like going to a restraunt and they say about an ''all you can eat'' offer. If somebody else had already eaten everything they could before you, and there was barely anything left, you would be complaining to the restraunt staff. So its the same with your internet service, you use it excessively, and other people are just want to do simple things like emailing, going on forums and just generally browsing the web, even that will be extremely slow.

Verizon DSL. 768kbp/s (a little slow, but fine for me). No cap. I use about 20-40GB of bandwidth a month, depending how much crap I download that particular month.

My mobile broadband is rumored to cap at 5gb, but that's not really an issue as I don't exactly download torrents on my smartphone.

For desktop, I'm not capped as far as I know, but my ISP shuts off high bandwidth users under suspicion of piracy. You also have to call ahead to tell them the MAC address of any non-Windows device (including things like PlayStations or XBoxes) if you want their internet service to work for you...they have a Windows-only login scheme that don't play nicely with routers.

I'll be glad when I've moved into an apartment complex where I can choose my own ISP. I'll have to pay more for it, obviously, but at least it will my my own connection, rather than a nanny-cam via ethernet cable.

Comcast here, finally they've let the public know what they're monthly bandwidth cap is. We've gone over twice, still I had no idea how much it was because we just received a letter in the mail telling us we'd used more than 100x the national average.

250GB is tough to break.

I have limits per hour periods. 3GB 16:00-21:00. 6GB 10:00-16:00. Unlimited the rest.

No cap, I download around 1600 kbps and it's pretty decent. My line speed is 16mbps.
Virgin media is good, but Be is better.

Officially, there's no cap for my service, but I've heard the ISP sends out letters around 80GBs. This month I've used a bit over 100 and so far I haven't gotten anything from them.

I've got unlimited as well, but they start to nag you after 400 or 500gb a month.

Using Netcabo (Portugal) 18mbps\1mbps.

Got more info about my cap. It just reduces me to 512kbps if I exceed 30GB.

For a detailed view, look at the plans:
Download-Upload-MaxGB
1000-?-10
3000-512-30
6000-512-60
12000-?-90

I read about the Comcast cap limit too, too bad they don't let you find out how much you downloaded.

Anyway, my ISP allows unlimited, but I have a 1384 kbps download connection so it wouldn't have mattered

Make that 80GB now, TPG brought out some new plans...had to "upgrade" even though it was the same price, in that same time of upgrading, they accidently somehow managed to put me onto a Business Plan, freaken glad that trouble is over now.

35GB Onpeak, 45GB Offpeak. Better then the 25GB/25GB I was on before at the same price.

Yeah Comcast doesn't tell you how much bandwidth you have used. However since I'm running a router with DD-WRT on it (a custom firmware) I have a meter telling me how much I've used.

I used 24.8GB Down and 1.5GB Up. Which averages out to about 800MB per day down, and 52MB up.

Unlimited. DD-WRT says that I've used almost 50GB last month.

Hmm, dissapointed theres no 500GB ADSL2+ plan as promised ($79.99/mth.) Who cares, for $5 less a month I can get 2.5x the downloads and unlimited uploads. I think I know who I'm switching to when we move.
