I'm a student
Generally, I want to be able to play games with out lagging out, I want to be able to download large files, with out them dropping out on me, and It would be really cool if I could have a Skype conversation that doesn't go silent every few minutes.
The most annoying thing is the games, because there is no way around it. Most large files can be downloaded through a BitTorrent mirror (which is usually faster anyway, and seems to be mostly immune to these problems), and as far as Skype goes, at least the entire call isn't dropped.
I’m not trying to do anything malicious; I just want to play games with out interruption.
Fair enough - but at the college where I teach we have to pay for every byte downloaded so all of those uses would violate our fair use policy and general student user agreement. Exceptions being actual teaching/learning requirements.
