If you're paying for unlimited bandwidth, you can't possibly use more
resources than you are paying for.  It's a syllogism or something. :)

If ISPs don't want customers to use massive amounts of bandwidth, they
should set clear and fair policies.  This would require striking the
word "unlimited" from all marketing materials.

As long as the ISPs are being childish, you can't expect much better
from their customers. :)
