No, what is probably happening is that your ISP doesn't implement
PPD/EPD (partial packet drop/early packet drop).  So when you go over
your 2.5M they just drop random cells from you.  Since a packet with
a cell missing is invalid, it gets dropped.

When you do this do you actually get limited to just 2?  And it doesn't work
when you limit yourslef to 2Mbps and they limit at 2.5Mbps it doesn't work?
That is odd.

The other possibility is that their switch is being too strict about
what constitues a burst.  Do small packets always get through, but
large packets always fail?  (i.e. compare a 60-byte ping to a 1400-byte

Can't they just watch your traffic and make sure you don't go over?
