If you're concerned about bandwidth usage, the real question is: Why
are you still using Rogers?

TekSavvy provides a 200GB/month and an unlimited plan, both at 5Mbps
for $30 and $40/month:

Execulink provides an unlimited plan at up to 5Mbps for $40/month:

If you like Rogers for their raw speed (I get a consistent 10Mbps with
their Extreme package), then I could understand, but if you're using
it for torrenting, then raw speed doesn't matter as much and total
bandwidth will be more important to you.
