Most Broadband ISPs are 128, if you want to run a server or a streaming, then get a business class line and stop running servers on a residential connection, read the AUP.

What could you possibly be uploading that would take hours... Even a large video wouldnt take that long, 1 - 2 minutes for a simple 3mb video, you must be uploading huge ISO's or something for it to take that long.

you don't need to read the AUP to know that the isp's are no different than any other corporation .. squeaky wheel gets the grease ... that's all there is to that ... maybe you'd like to pick up half that bill since you don't seem to concerened with a "get what i pay for" idealogy
