They rate-limit your port but I haven't noticed any indications of
"other" TE.  There is not a quota that I know of, but there is some
type of utilization monitoring, as a certain percentage of utilization
of what you currently pay for will prompt a request/demand that you
upgrade your service.  This based from the SMB Best Effort el cheapo
circuits.  I agree they shouldn't force someone into their
"professional" service without first at least turning them up on a
best-effort circuit.  The gamers might saturate a gig link, they might
only saturate 60-70MB....  And I too have noticed a lack of
understanding regarding on-net and off-net traffic and those
implications and possibilities.
