I intend to be upgrading to Broadband from 56K Dial-up very soon and need
a question answered before i commit.
Most ISP's i can connect to have Download or "Usage" limits which you pay more
for a higher amount.I understand that and i understand it with regard to downloading
What i do Not understand is what EXACTLY do ISP's mean when they refer to "usage".
What Exactly is "USAGE".I fear that it might include All Internet activity and not just to
the Downloading of say a wma file for instance.Does it ?
Is there a definitive answer to this OR do different ISP's define Usage differently from
one another ? Finally can being infected with any spyware/malware or viruses and trojans
or even spam consume the Bandwidth that will be incuded in a 6 gig a month Usage limit ?
I hope not but wouldn't be surprised.I'm clean and have good regularly updated security
but i want to know Exactly what the score is with regard to these issues before i make my
choice as to whom and what package,as ever many thanks.
