A nice idea if you've got a ton of bandwidth to play with, but we Canadians don't have the seemingly unlimited bandwidth the Americans have, so this would be irrelevant to me -- I don't want VOD to impact my paltry 60 GB/month!

cheers,

Please don't perpetuate ISPs' incorrect usage of 'bandwidth'.

bandwidth = size/speed of pipe (eg. 10Mbps)
traffic = total data that travels through the pipe (eg. 60GB/month)

You're right, of course. I find I use the term incorrectly much of the time, to describe exactly that. Yes, our ISPs give us extremely limited traffic compared to our American neighbours.
