Default Automated Rate-Limiting

Hi, I am in college right now and live in residence. The school network has a automated rate-limiting system. If I download over 4gigs in one week, then they slow my internet way down, to like a 14.4 modem connection. I was just wondering if anyone has any information on this. I want to know If I can somehow bypass it or "trick" the network into thinking Im not downloading anything.

Thanks,

Dustin

Hmm. Interesting how they have done that. Can you provide any more information? Can you used a proxy so as to not connection through your college ISP?
