They probably did it because the number of subscribers
has increased to the point that they need to start
limiting bandwidth to ensure that everyone gets their
fair share. They probably allowed subscribers to
exceed their allotted max bandwidth while the number
of subscribers was sufficiently low that they did not
have to worry about it. Now that they have a lot of
subscribers, they have to worry about it.
