Well if his ISP is contacted by authorities about illegal content downloading ... such as limewire movies ... his ISP can (depending on what's stated in their written user agreement) cap him or shut him down for a period of time ... or indefinitely. So ... it could have everything to do with it.

Neo dont worry about it, they do it now and again if you download heavy, you might not of downloaded, it might be from last month, my service provider (virgin) slow me down every few months because of previous months of downloading.

It all depends on what plan you are on with your ISP,When i go over 12gb,i get capped to 64kbps until the next billing cycle.
