Quick question about bandwith
 
Ok, so I asked before how I could download tons of crap and keep from getting TOS'ed by Comcast. And it seems that the answer from the two people in my area was that I could d/l all I wanted, just keep upload really low. I would like to check and make sure this is accurate as of now. Parents are leaving for a week, which basically means download spree 2004. So before I start getting 6 gigs of every batman comic ever made, I want to make sure that they wont come home to a letter saying we are banned from Comcast. So what can I do to protect my ass and keep Comcast from getting pissed at me when downloading large files?

IIRC, the trick is to keep the monthly average below 25 KBps, OTOH, YMMV.

Ouch. I may have blown that already because while my upload speed for bit torrent was around 3 kb/s, my download speed was in the hundreds since there were so many seeds.

when my parents leave for a week, i usually think of loud music and maybe a party or two, not consuming bandwidth.
but yeah, ive never had an issue with comcast regarding my bandwidth. i downloaded most of the "good" sets in three or four days without consequence, and then there are dvd-r's, etc...

^^ well my friends are sort of the quiet sort. The closest thing to a party we have is a loud evening of gamecube. So I'm a nerd goddamnit!

But it averages the whole month, and you'll get a warning letter before they'll cut service.

Ok then. Because we got one a few months ago and have been at least attempting to watch it since then.
