Sup
Probably ridiculous but does anyone know anything to boost internet speeds when your capped? Even slightly.
I'm on a telstra bigpond 25G standard liberty cable connection.
It's so very annoying having an internet connection as bad as / worse than dial-up.

shit thing with craptus and bigpoo is they count uploads as well.. so 20GB would probably end up being ~15GB if you use torrents alot...

My serious suggestion is switch ISPs. Bigpond overcharge through the arse and people eat it all up because you get 5% off your bills when you go with telstra for everything... little do you know they make like 10% more off you than other companies even with the discount.

It may be an inconvenience to pay 2 bills, but netspace is a fuckload cheaper than most others... Im with 'node and im getting ripped a new one... $149/month for 80gb. Even 12GB with bigpuddle is $59... then 20gb for $79? fuck that.

I'm on 12GB Cable... it's enough every month, never been capped until last month, first one ever. And by accident, if I need anything that bad, I just get it on the last day of the months billing.

But the thing is, I can get enough shit at each reSpawn that lasts me till the next and beyond so I don't need to download anything. You guys must get bored real easy! lol!

Apparently some new isp is coming out that offers unlimited downloads.
The difference is you have to pay for anything extra, like tech support etc.. so good luck if you have a line fault
