    Comcast is giving me shit because i used 500gb last month and there limit is 250gb a month (BS if you ask me), I only have 1 other option in my area for High speed internet which is verizon fios. I am not sure if they have monthly bandwidth limits as well, but i would like to know if anyone knows how or is it possible to change your ip address with fios using the mac spoofing technique, or any other technique?

    Reason i put this in this section is beacause the reason for my bandwidth problems are because of torrent downloads, and what better place to ask such a question.

    I have Fios and as far as I know they don't have a limit on bandwidth, at least I've never gotten any complaints and I do a lot of downloading.

    With that said, it's a bitch to change your IP on Fios. If you plan on changing it often, Fios is not for you. They intentionally make it hard to change. I've had it for over a year and haven't found a solution yet and I haven't read where anyone has.

    I would love to be able to have a download cap of 250g. I pay $120.00 a month and my cap is at 425meg a day.

    ohoho, I'm on my first day of flat internet ever. My ISP finally added flat to all packages. Well, fair use TBH so some 300+ GB but since I've never had more than 20GB of monthly bandwidth I'm happy as after first sex.

    Having you considered buying a VPS or dedi, putting a VPN on there or use some proxies, and downloading all your stuff there? Just a suggestion.

    proxies wont hide bandwidth use will it. how does seedbox work?
    how would i use a vpn for this purposes? i need a solution thats fast, and the ability to change my IP for use with multiple eBay accounts 10+ accounts is the goal i am currently at 3 and working my way up. Need a different IP and proxies are just too slow when it comes to https for each log in.

    I have a solution (comcast business class has no cap) but i would rather not deal with CC anymore because i just dont like bandwith caps on my ISP.

    My thing is that
    i download a lot of HD movies, 4+GB in size each and i can reach 300GB in just 15 days.
