I live in hull... so this means i can only get on the internet via Karoo which is kingston communications. There rule is NO UPLOADING!!!! or else get disconnected. About a month ago... I got caught uploading Scarface PSP game, ( good job it wasnt my pron) I then got disconnected for a month cos it was my first time, then i got aletter though the door saying that if it happens again i will have to pay £80 for a new connection. Is there any way of stopping them from seeing what i am doing and uploading.

TY

No. I suggest you simply live by their rules or enjoy dial-up speeds. :)

I would suggest you can implement Quality of Service (QoS) settings in your router. Routers can limit the upload speeds if you set them. What type of router do you have?

OK two things:

Uploading a copyrighted game is illegal. You should be lucky that they didn't know what you were uploading.

Second of all, I'm not too sure that it's not NO uploading. In order to have a connection, you need upload and download. Find out what is the cap for uploading.

Some ISPs would put these caps because their network would not be able to handle the load. My guess from what you wrote, the company is not that big.
