No here in Belgium you can have a deal with telenet who provides me a 10 
Gig down/2.5 Gig up at 4MBit down /196Kbit
up for 42 Euro a month. Plus the download  limits  are  flexible when 
you reach your 10Gig you can purchase an extra 20Gig's
at 1 euro a gig and the counters are kept for a 30 day period so I 
rarely exceed the 10Gig limit by more then a couple of Gig's.
