As with most ISP's, you can select your download limit in the plan.

Mine's reasonable (10 + 10 Gb) and regarded as a low-end plan, and 
I've never exceeded it ... so, I've prepaid for something I never 
even look like exceeding anyway.

As I said ... net result of a software download costs me bugger all.

The ISP pays a cost ... but presumably they've built that into my 
plan anyway and are making some sort of profit on the deal.

That said ... everything has a cost - agreed, and if they had a lower 
end broadband plan with the speed and performance I want I'd probably 
go for it - but they don't.
