I can only live stream for 2 hours?

So currently I get 70 down and 5 up and I stream to Twitch.tv. I streamed at 720p30fps at a bit rate of 2000kbps and I was playing borderlands 1. I wanted to know why I can only stream for 2 hours and some times I can stream for longer/less? I notied my speeds drop when the livestream becomes laggy.

Switch to the Vivid 200 Gamer broadband package so that you can stream without issue.

Basically on non game packages you have a limit on your upstream data.
