Alright well i hooked up my xbox online and i live in alaska and our isp gotta buy the bandwith from seattle.
this the only cable isp in alaska and the dsl isp sucks.

i am limited to 10 gb per month if i go over that its 20$ per gig!

I was wondering if somehow i can try to talk them into having no limits or more cuz playing halo online for a few hours counts up FAST!

i already pay 50$ a month and iof ay another 20$ a month it will go faster bt only 15gb a month then.
the speed is fine.

ANy ideas or what i should do so i can play halo more

you dont need to worry about anything. playing games online takes up a really small amount of space or whatever. youre not really downloading anything. even if you are, its gonna be really small. 10 gigs a month is plenty for online gaming. you could be downloading mp3's all month, and you would never fill up that 10 gigs. theres nothing to worry about:D :)

I got the same thing I get 5gigs a month and I play as much quake 3 as I want and dont have a problem and I play ALOT!!! so u dont got anythin to worry about.

ya but quake 3 isnt very demanding online
hell....its playable through 56k although I do play it with cable(or did) got bored of that game though
oh and whoever thinks that they have "unlimited" internet use or bandwidth etc....well that person would be very dumb and if u fill up 20 gigs a month I really feel quite sorry for u man.....u dont have another life besides the computer???and games/xbox?

i never said that. read my post again dude. i said that he COULD be downloading mp3;s all month, and he would never fill up 10 gigs. oh yea, and i do have unlimited storage. they dont put a limit on how much i can download.
