    My ISP has a limit of 95gigs per month up & down then charges extra per gig
    Is there a script to avoid extra charges
    Say download & upload at the limit then at 85gigs slow my connect down to 50%
    at 90gigs slow to 10% then stop it at 95gigs

    This would eliminate all extra charges from the isp

    if you try shaping d/l bandwidth by dropping packets, the isp still counts it against you. meaning if someone was DoS'ing you you'd still be charged. Remember upload bandwidth you can control, but d/l are not controllable, other than blocking and dropping packets, effectively delaying it.

    In other words you can throttle back the outbound traffic with a reasonable limit as you check the bandwidth graphs each day/week and throttle the outbound traffic accordingly, inbound is much harder to control though... It's the exactly the same general idea, mentioned in my previous post.
