Bandwidth Limit Increased to 100GB
May 1, 2014
We've increased the weekly bandwidth limit to 100GB for all residents.
Although you have much more bandwidth available, it's important to use it in a safe and legal way. Copyright protection agencies are still actively monitoring peer-to-peer file sharing networks, and universities receive a large number of copyright notices for students illegally sharing files.
Use your bandwidth responsibly to avoid potential legal problems. Read more on File Sharing & Copyright
