Angry Limiting bandwith?

Ok so I live in a apartment and i room with this girl who always slows down the internet by 10 folds... i usually have 10-20
ping but she streams from china/and or dl from from where ever.... idk where. But its kills the internet. i have another room
mate that download n streams also but internet is still perfect. But when the other room mate goes on she laaaags the fck
out outta the internet. Is there anything i can do to stop her.. shes not cooperating also.

o yea its wireless n i dont have access to the router

Nothing you can do but to pay for your own internet instead of leeching from somebody else.

It's for cellular internet, you'll have to sign up with verizon and pay for internet access, but if you have a laptop you can get internet anywhere you can get a cell signal.

It would not be good for Gaming Online if that is what your asking.

Just get some Verizon DSL or Fios or something. It's fast, and quite cheap I think . . . THINK!

See if you can get a Verizon DSL line for around $12 a month.
