the most i ever went over one month was about 12gb prolly . what makes me lagh most about the whole situ is this right . My parents are being real stupid about this cso at the moment we pay 15 so thets say 30usd to the isp and we get a 1mb connection with 2gb monthly allowance yet for an extra 5 or 10usd a month there are loads of other isps offering 8mb connections and unlimeted fair usage bs and yesterday evening and some of this morning our connection was down yet they still arent gonna change even tho they said as soon as the 12month contract was over they where getting a new isp which realy pisses me off so know i have just assumed the position of download whatever i want cos i cant be arsed waiting a month if i wanna download a big file

If you guys/gals wanna see how much your downloading, then give this a try

Also, just to add about the fair usage policies. Most ISP's let you download as much as you want outside peak hours, so its still uncapped in theory.

And, Maurice, if you do not download from torrents or P2P oriented programs, you're fine to use that.
Thanks for that, can I ask something that's puzzling me?, I had no bugs for more than a year until I clicked on Mammikoura's link & viewed the porn that was there, now I've had 5 trojans in 3 days, could there be a connection?, I haven't d/loaded anything for ages & ages.

First, sorry we had that little spat, I was OTT, I know, somebody else had rattled me & I'm afraid I took it out on you
Anyway, I have the free version of AVG, it's brilliant, it put those back-door trojans in it's vault as it always has done with whatever bugs I've had over the last three years, & there's been some right stinkers, believe me!!
