hmmmm....that's a bit different from bandwidth overload. Data quotas are it seems relatively easy to advise. I get mine from 'node' consistently. The issue is the over-demand on a limited resource. Assuming it is limited, of course. Does each person/location get its own connection, a la last mile copper or is it shared frequency, a la HFC cable?
