Only a limited amount of data transfer is allowed, for example 1 GB,  
or ten downloads ... Then it will cost, or the "host" or site will  
become inaccessible. The limit can also be an upload limit for you ...

Bandwidth means how many bits or bytes per second can be squeezed off  
the line. The connection to the Internet will be ATM (Asynchronous  
Transfer Mode) based, which is also the basis for DSL. In the USA the  
bandwidth is a multiple of 1,544 Mbit/sec (T1). This is about 90 Mbit/ 
sec, or, payload only, about 10 MB/sec. So 100 MB will need at least  
10 min. If three users start this project at the same time, it take  
30 min for each of them.
