it's actually quite common....especially in areas that have jsut recently recieved DSL or cable service (this mostly applies to DSL) or more rural areas....they limit your download to XGB a month and once you hit that cap they either completely kill your DL (rare) or drop your bandwith to such a low amount that the only thing you can download is the webpages itself...efectively causing file downloads to die

well I downloaded FlashGet and I couldn't download it so I just uninstalled it lol

I live in Houston, TX so...would they put a limit on my downloads? Or is that just for smaller places? I don't download many things. I'm getting stressed here lol

the only way to find out if you've got a download cap would be to call your ISP

bleh, I really don't feel like dealing with those people. I asked my friend to download it for me and send it to me via Windows Live Messenger. It's not even halfway done but we'll see how it goes
