I have to say that I agree with the ISP. To be fair, it's your fault that
the connection requests are coming in.
I've never used bittorrent, but can't you just be a kind of parasite and
download from everyone else while not offering anything yourself for
download? That would solve your problem. Of course it's not in the
"community spirit" but I think it's fair enough if you are a Uni student and
you are poor. On the other hand, if you not poor, I suggest you pay the
extra $5 per month - it won't kill you. You wouldn't believe the feeling of
calm derived from never worrying about your download usage - it's worth
paying for in my opinion.
