    Since you pay to go to the university, you usually don't have to pay extra for the connection. Some places tack on a small fee to the other charges, but it doesn't amount to much. My school didn't have any limits on downloads, but I do know that some places have implemented restrictions on people who download or upload lots.

    I'm behind shool network, too, and since the "sasser incident" and the like, I couldn't get access to my cPanel (web server admin panel), and has to login to network every 8 hrs. No P2P either, nor online gaming.

    its nice that you dont have any download, we get schemes with high speeds like 256 kbps, but they have a download limit of something like 1GB per month..that really me off..

    If you are living in a bigger city in Germany, you can get DSL 3MBit down, 512K up for ~50/Month ( ~60$ ? ). This includes ISDN telephone basic costs. No limits concerning size or online time, but you don't have a static IP, so you get disconnected every 24h if you did not disconnect yourself in the last 24h.

    I don't do any P2P save from downloading FH ( BF Mod ) versions and WoW updates. Both are BitTorrent and something like start when I go to bed, done when I wake. From straight download sites I get up to 300K downstream which is to be expected. If it's slower, it's the site.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
