My ISP imposes bandwidth caps on my Internet service, and I've reached the limit. Now when I visit a website it's not showing me the page. I try google it's play slow.

Any ideas for working around this issue?

Problem is solved by reporting ISP about this issue.

What do you mean by "play slow" exactly? –  Ramhound Jun 21 '12 at 16:15

1 Answer 1


  • Pay for an upgraded plan which allows for more bandwidth
  • Switch providers to someone with larger bandwidth caps or none at all
  • Use a cell phone with a tethering plan

Your location (Country/Region) will determine which of these options are actually available.

I have no idea what you means "Pay for an upgraded plan". I have #1 plan they have for the user. As specification they should give me at-least 256KBPS in the case of bandwidth exceed. I have report them about it and waiting for response. –  Gupta Jun 22 '12 at 4:28
