What would be nice is someone who charges you for bandwidth, not for data transfered. There's an excellent company in the UK who do exactly this: www.mailbox.net.uk for ~UKP65 a month you can get 256kb/s in 2U. Something needs to be developed along these lines: 256kb/s sustained = ~80gbyte month transfered. The current bandwidth limit should be calculated such that based on how much I've used since the start of the month, my bw cap would go up or down to keep me on the average to end at 80gbyte. Example: If I only use 128k/s sustained for 15 days (total 20Gb), for the last 15 days I should be allowed to use ~384kb/s so that I end exactly at my allotted 80Gb, no more. Now *that* would be useful. -- Avleen Vig Systems Administrator Personal: www.silverwraith.com EFnet: irc.mindspring.com (Earthlink user access only)
