    Actually, it is possible to 'shape' torrent traffic to an extent. This is what Rogers Cable Internet is rumoured to be doing.

    Of course this is why torrent programs now encrypt it's traffic.

    Bell could monitor traffic if it wanted to but unless you're doing something really dumb they wouldn't bother.

    Yup, and comcast in the US also is doing that. what I truly meant is just because someone wanted to use a torrent app, doesn't automatically equal abuse. it's the user that decides if they will be abusive, and not the data use methods at their disposal.

    A torrent program just uses lots of data - if you let it.

    That there is the ultimate question. For myself I know my usage will be mainly email. But if I am on the road and there's a hockey game on... it will be VERY tempting to connect to my slingbox.

    Here, let me spell it out for you. I'm a Data 123 Tech at Bell Mobility and I can promise you, as of this writing, the Touch comes with UNLIMITED onboard data. All outlook (including exchange activesync), HTML and any onboard services are unlimited.

    Stream all you want from Youtube, or listen to free stream radio (sites will vary). It's all unlimited (read the fine print though, abuse will be shut down).

    Heck, I can't wait for a Torrent program to be written for WM 6.

    I'm going to have a Touch in my hands in a few hours and I plan on seeing if streaming works 'out of the box'.
    You serious?? So I can download and upload on Bittorrent (literally) 24/7 and not get charged? I must get this phone..

    As of right now there is no torrent program for wm but I'm sure someone, somewhere is going to create one. The real issue is what the limit will be. Rogers has a ~150 gig up and down limit. Bell will have something similar

    Well that's more than my home internet so I'm happy with that limit.

    I don't think you understand. The 150 gig limit is for Rogers home service. On wireless you can't go over 1GB.

    On Bell Mobility, there are some reports that you can go as high as 25GB, as long as you don't use that much every month. I bet if you used 1 to 5 gigs per month max they'd leave you alone. On Bell Sympatico Unplugged, you can use up to 2GB on the smaller plan and 10GB on the $65 plan.

    Most 3G wireless networks would crash if people use over 20 gigs regularly anyhow, so I really hope Bell kicks off those abusers right away.

    Regards.

    FIDO $55 MB/SK unlimited w/5GB = $44.55 (BYOD 10% + add-a-line 10% discounts, $10/GB overage)
    WIND $15 AITF unlimited data (10GB soft cap)

    That's the name of our department. When you call the 1-866-DATA-123 number you get someone like myself.
