For those who have comcast, has anyone else experienced this problem with the bandwidth limit?
I downloaded probably 40+ gigs worth this month, and now my internet is really slow. This also occurred another time earlier this year when I probably downloaded 30 or so gigs worth of files, and my internet became very slow afterward.

Anyone else get this problem? Or know any information about it?


EDIT: I've read some articles, and it seems as though comcast does not tell of what their bandwidth limits are, or even how close your reaching your limit...
Well I guess that just means I've gotta wait 10 days til I can download big files again :(

Comcast service where I live gets 4 megs down, and the premium service is 6 megs down.
I have DSL which is about 20 bucks cheaper with 700/128 or so. It would suck to have a bandwidth limit....

You might've misunderstood what I'm talking about...

Comcast (or atleast the one I got), only allows you to download like 50 gigs worth of files a month, and once you get near that limit, your internet connection gets terribly slow, like 1 or 2 kb per a sec.



EDIT: It's good now though, so I can post again :)

I easily downloaded 50+ gigs worth of files last month, and probably already 20+ gigs this month.
What would I do in a world without torrents :)

You go to download a file, and the file gets leached by whoever is seeding it....basically your just downloading a file from a bunch of different people, and you can choose to let other people download from you aswell.

These files could include dvd's, games, warez stuff, and lots of other usefull things.

Yeah, it's a form of P2P, I like it better than a P2P, you have more things available.
Warez is anything illegal, such as roms, serials, cracks, and kegens.
