Movie Industry Files Injunction Against UK ISP
to be fair Virgin's "limit" is at peak times, when you're probably going to find things are a bit slow anyway. I'm on Virgin, and downlod more than that most months, mostly overnight, and I've never had their warning letter.
Virgin are pretty up front about their peak time monitoring, and afaict have only recently come up with a figure for triggering their sending of a letter.
(for disclosure reasons i work for a company who work for virgin, but have no interest in promoting their services, i'm just giving my experiences)
