Realy realy high night traffic, will i be penalised?

Will i be classed as abusing the system if i download lots over night during the free period? eg last night i did about 17Gb just want to know wether or not i should restrict my own speed to do less overnight

do what you want from 1 minute past midnight to just before 8, definitely no limit, some are reported to reach 1 TB in a month

@pierre_pierre I thought I had read somewhere theres a 50gb per-night limit for offpeak downloading.. I might be mistaken Smiley

there was a guidance limit on some of the very old packages I believe but certainly not on any of the current or more recent ones

I think I was told when i had my chat this is what the rep told me... I dont know if 50gb was just an example.... but she used 'truly unlimited' in the same sentence..
"Absolutely yes - you will have unlimited usage from midnight to 8am every day, truly unlimited so you can download 50GB per night every night if you would like free of charge"
I'll probably be testing the limit very soon Wink

50GB equates to eight hours continuous at 14Mbps.    Wink
