I would hit the cap rather quickly.

As far as what i download that would hit the cap. HD Netflix uses a tonne of bandwidth, also Linux builds (1.25Gb) once a week and CM nightlies (162Mb) every day. Not to mention Music streaming from Pandora on a few computers, and Google music on a few computers. Not sure how much Bandwidth Folding @ home does however, the PS3 is set to do that non stop.

You have a virgin leased line?

Or in some trail area?

Because their normal broadband is delivered either over COAX or ADSL.

It doesnt mean your more likely to run into the limit?

It just means that a file you wanted/needed to download, be it on 24mb or 80, its quicker on 80!

Strictly speaking that's true, though most people want higher speed connections because they use them a lot - not because they want a driver download to take 10 seconds, instead of 20 seconds. It means if you take full advantage of your connection you will run into the limit much more quickly. More importantly, there are unlimited services available for the same price so there really isn't any reason to put up with that sort of restriction.

What provider are you with?

Talktalk. I'm one of those who've rarely had a problem, and when I did it got sorted within 4 hours. Plus I've not yet found a cheaper deal.

BT Infinity is really good since they are unlimited as well, well worth the price, got 65/20 with them.

Yup, been with them a few months now and never had a problem, on the Infinity 2 package (Unlimited) 80/20. :)

This is true with their normal ADSL service, but the Infinity service is really good and recommend it, and this is coming from someone who avoided BT like the plague. :p
