I know of at least 2 reasons they don't like p2p stuff. 1) It costs them money for every byte going to other ISPs/networks. There are interconnect fees between these networks they negotiate, so it costs a couple pennies to transfer data.2) (more likely) The ISPs lie to you when they sell you X mbps Internet. They run a high bandwidth hub to an area, and people share this hubs bandwidth knowing that not everyone accesses the Internet at the same time. That way they can sell like 250mbps+ on a 100mbps connection hub. If multiple people start downloading and hogging this pipe, your neighbors don't get as much of that window and they complain. Then it costs them more to put a bigger pipe to you.
