To be honest, I think that if I pay my ISP a reasonable amount (£25 atm), as
long as I don't take the micky with the amount I download, I should be able
to utilise whichever services I require.

I'm still shaped heavily despite spending all that cash and transferring
less than 10 Gig a month (usually around 6).

That aint fair!
