Ok, While we are speculating...
it wouldn't neccesarily reduce profits by doing this.
  but it would add value to their service. I am finding myself downloading all my
large files at work as I dont want to go over my limit. there is no way I would dowload 
big files through webone, it would be cheaper to get a cd from someone or even buy it from
It would however be a good (cheap)way to differentiate themselves from netspeed in order to gain 
market share. this would also be in transact's interest as it would make their service
more attractive. WebOne could use this to leverage their deal with transact.
