That's a really bad situation to be in but I couldn't cope with a cap like that. I'd blow through it in no time, just as you have. Not only that but I'd be constantly worried about going over, which just isn't any fun. It's worth checking your legal rights, as there may be a way to minimise or avoid any leaving cost - even if it's a longshot it's better checking it out than forking over that much money unnecessarily.
I've checked my legal stance, and I can not leave early, There is not a cooling off period once the connection has "gone live" (which was three weeks ago).
I just called and to end, I have to pay £200, plus I'd lose the £115 that was paid in one chunk for the line rental.

Sry to say but i dont dont see how your using 10 gig a day unless none of you leave the house or your always watching HD videos though i will admit i have no idea on netflix as i do not use there service.
One thing you can do is install this on all the computers and see who is draining the most of the bandwidth http://www.floriangilles.com/software/netspeedmonitor/download/
nother alternative is to see see if you can flash your router with custom firmware: http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index
oh and of cause install extensions like adblock plus, no script etc etc. But hitting a 250gig limit is something ive not done in a while and that was only because i downloaded alot.
But personally i dont hit 10gig a day unless im using torrents and even then they can be set ona timer.
I know what you're saying, I just wish I didn't have to constantly think about how much I am downloading. I find downloading 8 GB a day (which is all I'm entitled to with a 250 GB cap) easy to use.
