I don't know about other ISP's but xnet were doing this already.Three strikes and your out.Are other ISP's just ignoring infringement notices at the moment or something? It will be interesting to see how this pans out and if it has any significant effect on piracy at all.Personally I think the only way to make people think twice would be to prosecute some random and slap him/her with a hefty fine.

I'm in the awesome "Red Zone" but lo and behold the speeds promised to me are not what i am getting.But it is sufficient for what i want at the moment and the speed will increase in the near future according to customer service person # 44458 Lol.At least my torrents aren't getting the life throttled out of them .
My plan is 20gb + home phone and fax for $93 a month which knocked around $15 or so a month off my bill dealing with Telescum and Xnet.

Red zone is limited to the actual exchange and not the roadside cabinets which is a shame. I'm miles away from the exchange but the roadside cabinet is only 4 doors down! They say that eventually they'll have access to the cabinet too which is why they promise to provide better speed at a later date. I think Telescum has just stared upgrading the connection to fibre between exchange and cabinets.

I cannot complain too much, I get great speed (ping could be better) and no throttling from what I can tell. Torrent of around 1.4GB in less than an hour isn't to be sneezed at. $90 per month for 30GB + $2 per GB thereafter 7MB down/512KB up... older plan and I refuse to give it up for now. :)

of course, just google the name of the media u r after and put rapidshare after the name and google will magically find you the blog that contains the links.

for private torrents u need to have fast bandwith and dont mind sharing, google that too and u'll find exactly what u need 2 know.
