There has been a lot of controversy in recent years about the legality surrounding file sharing sites, especially with the explosion in popularity of wireless internet. And now, there’s another reason for concern: the high bandwidth these types of sites use. While you may delight in easy access to the music or other media you’re looking for, it’s important to be aware of what you share with others. Many file sharing programs will run in the background and act as a server, sharing what you’ve downloaded with the world. You can disable file sharing in your program on your mobile device, but this won’t always turn off all file sharing. Some say the best way to avoid using a high amount of bandwidth is to uninstall file sharing programs on your computer altogether, and opt instead for online alternatives, like watching video or playing games online.
