Why not it suits me fine ! I don't download that much, I use my bandwidth for gaming mostly so I'm more interested in the faster connection than the amount I can download.

Wow,

To be fair alot of people wanted it. But i have got used to the idea now of fair usage policy. I found out i only download around 22-26gb per month what takes it over the top of 30gb is my uploading i do. so infact I could have fitted the policy fine. Like I have always said if the first cap was 40 - 50gb then i would never have started this huge chat about it. But LoL "parkhead" dont think they stopped the fair usage just because of me they would of had huge meetings over it & did alot of thinking & taken everyones reviews on this subject.

so whats going to happen to all the price plans now ? all going to change again ?

Have a wee look at customer feedback section of the actual plusnet forums. There is a thread just started headed "FUP Withdrawn - Questions here" (sign in with guest guest)

I think that ones going to grow and grow as it has been mentioned that the contention ratio was said to be no longer an issue in for users because of the change to boradband pricing structure.

I think Plusnet is going to take action like I suggested & thats to just kick the high bandwidth users which was my point I made along time ago & a few other peoples idea's I do infact understand that they use so much bandwidth that it does everyone in.

I think plusnet are 100% on the right track now though from reading about the contention ratio.

See as plusnet say its about 1% of the customers causing the problems. so Plusnet just need to help them to a differnet ISP LoL Smiley

Initially I thought 'great, no more fair usage', but then I wonder how the pricing is going to work (Im on £21.99 with 2mbits, moved to 30GB premier). They have withdrawn new premier accounts until the 28th, but I'm just a bit worried about what it will mean for me when they decide what the pricing plans will be... expecially as fair usage wouldnt have affected me !!

Kinda concerned myself. Was just about to do what you did and move down to that level (was discussing it with someone yesterday and about to raise a ticket) but now this moves the goal posts.

I agreed with FUP there were alot of people like me too. Most people who disagreed, some very loudly in this forum, changed their mind when it they weighed up the pros and cons.

You say when they decide about the pricing it appears they already have

I suppose we'll have to wait and see. And watch the ranting and raving which is always good for a laugh. Cheesy
