No, but they could certainly watch how much you're uploading and limit your speeds based on that. From what I gather, doorcoq is a victim of just this kind of treatment, and other ISPs are employiong similar tactics. They like to limit upstreams to give people who are just web-browsers and emails the illusion that they have a fast connection....BT is pushing upstream limits to the max, and they are not going to be happy about that.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
