I laugh at ze americans and your caps, last months usage for me , 314gb ... not even a friendly call from my ISP.... bleh. And 250gb of that was a back-up image I had to download from a friends FTP - it took a while

So yeah, in germany a flatrate is a flatrate, no limits, no bullshit. No overage fees, though you can buy capped lines too, for extremely cheap. Ever since I heared rumours about "golden handshakes" from ISP's to get high users out of the contract i tried this every now and then. My ISP never even budged. Which means, i must be pretty average in my usage around here, which kinda scares me

The last time I heard/read about something like that actually happening was on some forum about six or seven years ago or so.
Apparently they tried to get power users to cancel their subscription if they got over 100GB/month but as I said - it was relatively long ago and I don't think they are doing that anymore.
