I wasnt aware i was getting charged for going over my monthly usage limit for downloads on BT broadband..i assumed they would just stop your downloading when you peaked! They have charged me 80 pounds over the year.

Is there any providers who dont charge?

I think BT offer a TOTAL broadband or broadband deal with unlimited/very high usage allowance.

Check the website.

Edit - I just had a look. I think I am on option 3, which allows unlimited downloading. W00t. £25 a month.

For £20 a month you can get 15gb of downloads. Surely that's a fair bit.

The simple fact is that bandwidth is expensive. The concept of "unlimited bandwidth" is hazy in definition, they will usually reduce your speed to keep you under a usage quota so although you're not being presented with a fixed allowance each month you're still being limited. This is often in the small-print of your contract under a fair-use policy and while it's slightly dishonest it's the only way service providers can turn a profit because the price they have to pay BT for bandwidth is shocking.

Basically your options are to go with an "unlimited usage" package that restricts your speeds or go with a provider such as NewNet who provide a bandwidth monitor and the ability to top-up your allowance on a monthly basis rather than just giving you a huge bill later.
