We pay a flat rate here in the states too, if anyone cares.... I get 8Mbps with a monthly limit of 250GB. There has been talk of migrating toward a graduated system where you pay according to your bandwidth usage (i.e. not flat rate), but I hope it doesn't happen. Flat rate is soooo nice...

I have had several different ISP's here in the States and I have never had a limit on bandwidth. I've always paid a flat rate based on the speed.

Lucky you It used to be, that my 80GB package was download only. Now some bright spark has realised they can charge for upload too, so now its 80GB upload/download

BCXtreme, I see flat rate means to us something different. You have a 250 gig monthly limit in your flat rate pack, which in Finland is today an unknown thing. There are no monthly volume limits, surf and download all you want to, with a fixed price.

The limit on the bandwidth is not part of the charge, it's just the standard point at which the ISP sends you a warning.. It's not like they cut off your service or anything ... if you surpass 250GB in one month, they will contact you and ask you to curb your usage a little. It's not a dedicated line, so using extravagant amounts of bandwidth slows down the whole district.
