Default Bandwidth...

Hey everyone, I'm new here, and hope to stick around. I came for a certain reason though...Am I addicted to torrents or is my ISP a POS?

I just received an e-mail from them saying that there has been a high rate of data transfer on my IP address...I checked on their website, and I'm allowed 25 gigabytes/month. Is that too little? Is it a good idea to change my service providers? For $50 a month I was expecting AT LEAST 50 gigs...

Who's your provider? I'm with Cogeco, and I might switch...I actually did both (went over 25gigs AND downloaded at a high speed)...But I've set it to download at 15kb/s maximum, and no complaints yet.

25Gigs a month seems very good for $50 a month.

The only way you'd get better I would have thought would be to get something like AOL who has unlimited bandwidth, but you'd have to sign in through AOL and have it on all the time in the background. Quite probably not worth it.
