25gig is stil alot aswell, their are alot of surplers in the uk that give less than that but i ablige by the rules and quietly download a bit here and there and thats surfficient for me, they do have a fair usuge policy aswell like no downloading between 6-11pm but im happy with that

40gb is a decent amount if you dont download torrents... but i do. it gets my by i suppose. it stops me from going too crazy with the downloading which is a good thing sometimes but some months theres just loads of stuff i want.

Ahhh, I have a very funny story about downloading torrent files. One day, my internet was running extremely slow and web pages were loading very very slowly. So, I called my ISP and told them that the internet was very slow. The lady I was speaking with did some tests on my connection and said, "Yeah, you seem to have an unusually slow ping rate." And I'm like, "really?" Then I noticed that Azereus was running when I looked down at all my startup icons(I had forgotten that it was running because I was downloading a large file). So I closed it, and then she goes, "Oh, everything seems to be back to normal now!" I felt like a retard.
