Why do they even care about how much bandwidth you use?

Because they want to encourage people not to use alot of bandwidth, so they can avoid paying for it, therefor raising their profits.

To me though the more restrictions a company would set in terms or limiting bandwidth would discourage people from using them....just my .2

well if you hide your ISP number
it would be more difficult for the provider to limit your bandwith
they would have to do it to the whole block or more
and that would mean loosing more profits than they would dare to risk
just my thoughts
but nevermind
it seems that we will just have to rally the troops
and form a petition to keep the bandwith good and wide
we pay for it after all
