Any idea when the 'opt-out' mechanism is going to appear

Since you have just made this information available after enforcing usage management on me can you now please restart the clock and allow me to manage my own account, with this information? I feel sure I'm up to it :lol:


Yes, as part of the post we are creating a one time "opt-out" mechanism next week so that customers can request a reset of their profile and adjust their usage patterns.



Is this happening any time soon? 'next week' is this week and we're half-way through

Thanks

Thanks Dave

Because you are allowing 5Gb of peak-time usage and 50Gb off-peak, I would really appreciate an on-line tool which shows these two bands. I appreciate that there are tools available for this, but I have a mac and a pc on a netgear router - I don't want any repeat of this recent usage management episode

I suppose I'm asking PN to help us help ourselves (and therefore help PN, I would have thought)

VMBU is going to be updated too to show the overnight figures seperately, the work request is in the system, I'll check this one tomorrow as well to see when it should be ready.

Of course you can. If enough members give up the ghost, but leave their DD's running... Smiley

I meant to say before that I was getting 77.4 kbps not 74 KB/sec, which wouldn't have been so bad, of course

I have mysteriously jumped to approx 700 kbps this morning (7.30am)
I'm guessing this is the result of some strange algorithm like

level 3 um x PN1.7357 (varying constant Wink ) / Off-peak non ftp x2/3 P2p squared x6 hrs + 11 :roll: Cheesy

How did you guess? We're going to have to change it all again now. Wink

Our bill is coming in next week, at this rate their is going to be no point ofeering an opt out.

Any updates on this? I cant be that hard to just reset all the BB+ users bandwidth for them.
