cables operators

Almost all ADSL operators in the UK operate bandwidth quotas.

eg: Currently my ISP is selling 50/20/5/0.5 GB a month options.

There are many reasons, the most powerful being price competition - the cheapest domestic ADSL is $18 a month (inc tax), ranging up to $50 a month for the highest quotas.
