yes, most isp's constrain the amount you can send back up channel. In
australia you generally can't serve (via http for eg) via your cable
service. if you do that they treat you as 'commercial' (yet another
instance of the telco's complete misreading of network technologies).
no idea what thhey're going to do about torrents and podcasting, but
you don't get same back up as down and usually there are limits.
