    There is always a bandwidth limit, even with unlimited internet plans. Read your contract.

    It's definitely legal.  If there is anything excessive that could be easily reduced it would be prudent to take reasonable measures however I wouldn't stop doing your normal activities.  Likely it's mostly one person in your household that is going nuts with massive downloads and\or 4k video streams that is being let run overnight.

    when you sign up fir internet service, you agree to their terms for thay service. some ISPs have limits on usage. most have multiple choices for speed. you should always read anything you sign. your "unlimited internet" likely had an asterisk at the end.

    you might also ask them, some let you back out of a contract within 30 days of use, if it is unacceptable.

    If it is costing them more than what you pay for the service then you need to read the fine print. There is usually a note about rates can change at anytime.
