Don't know of any, not sure I'd want them to - unless they could pick the
nature of the traffic. (Not sure I even want to have that discussion with
them, either!)

You might check your router and/or torrent client for some useful setting.

IIRC, for me it's $2/GB over the cap, max'ing out at $25/month.

So, if I'm going to go over, and can allow smtp, www, and the like, I'm ok
with that. I doubt those few would cost me more than the first $2. (I don't
do streaming, and VERY little You Tube.)
