    OK, i have had this idea for a while but i have no idea how to code or do anything like that.

    I was thinking, is it possible to make a program so that when you download something from another country or state, that it downloads into a server that is in your state and then you download from that server ?

    I know it sounds stupid, but i am planning to get a faster internet connection but the problem is, its only got 40gb a month downloads unless you download from a server from your own state and then its free.

    I dont want the download to all go to the server and then i have to download it, but to act as a buffer if that makes sense.

    I think you could possibly just use a proxy (and the server that your using the proxy with is located in the US) and that would work. Not 100% sure though.

    The Freenet peer-to-peer project does something similar to this with its distributed hash table routing. Though it sounds like you want a geographically aware web cache, try looking at squid.

    Is your ISP using analog phone lines and worried about interstate charges? Shakes head...
