Yeah, we have a 6 gb limit and it's pretty tough to reach with ordinary use but 1 gb is fairly slim. A standard feature film, or 2 hours of tv, would pretty well kill 1 gb (just based on the size of iplayer files).

It depends on the college actually, we had a limit of 1gb and I got cut off fairly frequently watching tv online.
*6 gb free. After that you pay, and after...10 gb?...there's speed limiting as well as a fee. But they don't cut your internet off outright.
Finally, worth noting academic sites/sites within the intranet don't count towards the limit.

Cambridge's internet is much better than private broadband. The personal limit is very high, and if you go over it then you must be doing something very abnormal, that your ordinary private home internet wouldn't cope with/or your service provider would fine you for anyway. (Edit: my college's limit was very generous anyway)

They cut off your internet?
surely you are entitled to unlimited internet as part of your room accommodation costs, you're an adult not a child who needs their daily intake monitoring how ridiculous, and if it was about the money they can clearly afford it, cambridge having the highest endowment and all.
I miss my Cambridge internet We've got Virgin cable and its noticeably worse.
