    Oops, I meant uploads.

    I get around 8000 Kb/sec down and 1000 Kb/sec upload if I bypass my router, through my router download is cut to about 5000-6000 Kb/sec.

    By the way, I have Optimum Online.

    Edit: Here are the results of a speed test:

    they do not allow you to run any kind of server though, If you upload to much (alot) your upload speed gets capped at 128. Download is totally unlimited

    No, I do not have a business account. I have a residential account and never had any problems with my provider except a comment from tech support that we use a lot of bandwidth compared to their average customers. However, their average customers have a single machine and don't get 15,000 emails a month on average.

    Comcast increased our upload cap from 128 Kb/sec to 256 Kb/sec a few months back. It slightly helped with my Remote Desktop Connection and obviously doubled file uploads such as via FTP, but it is still horrendously low and can make RDC downright painful (Windows has a tendency to redraw the desktop icons five times in a row for no reason).

    In the US we have limits too. On my connection I'm limited to 10Mb per a second tops on download and 1Mb per a second tops on upload. If you mean yearly/quarterly/monthly/daily/hourly/minutely, that is just plain wrong.

    I just asked because in the UK there are tons of offers for cheap broadband, dsl or whatever that sound great, read the small small print though and you come across the bandwidth limitations which sucks really. I think NTL still do have the limit, but they do not appear to actively enforce it which is good.

    I believe NTL in the UK once had a limit of 1gig a day. Not sure if it is still like that now though.
