Is there a download limit on 'Free Usage'

Hi,
I'm on PAYG 15GB with no capped speeds which is great. Recently I've discovered the delights of newsgroups and NZB files so I'm scheduling lots of downloads for the 'Free Usage' period.
Can you tell me what the download limit for this period is? Or is it really unlimited? I've currently downloaded 100GB+ which is more than I've ever done before. How much is acceptable?
Thanks
-Mat

Hi there,
There are no set usage limits for off peak downloading.
I don't believe that we've ever had a chat with any of our customers for excessive usage off peak.

There's also no fair usage policy on unlimited.

There is an off-peak download limit on PAYG - around 2TB per month. Crazy
Assuming you are on ADSL2+ with a full speed sync & profile
