Bandwidth usage

I'm getting a bit confused here with all the talk about bandwidth usage/allowance etc, when i signed up for broadband plus I was under the impression that there was no need to track how much you download as stated below, can anybody tell me wheather this is indeed the case or not :?:

One other point which is probably my own fault for not looking further into things and signing up on the spur of the moment, but should the fact that you have to pay a fee for cancellation and modem not be made more clear. Shockedops:

Got this email today from plusnet:

Your peak usage for this billing month has exceeded the product design
therefore Level 2 Broadband Plus usage management has been applied to your
service during peak hours. Your Broadband service will continue to be
managed until your next billing date at which time peak-time usage
management will be removed. If your peak usage continues to increase
further peak-time usage management may be applied to your service.

Please reduce your usage and schedule large downloads for off-peak hours.
Alternatively you could upgrade to a broadband service better suited to
your needs. We recommend Broadband Premier or Broadband PAYG for customers
who want a service optimised for data-intensive activities -


What did I say about the word should. :twisted:

BB+ = 5GB cap as of a few days ago, so yes you do need to monitor your useage. And if you read on, does say subject to fair useage policy, which is why they can say unliited, and the fair useage policy states 5GB.

Its capped, they have just capped it in a way they can advertise it as unlimited, very very sly.
