no, assuming you are on 2meg premier then after 20gig you will start to have speed decreases gradually

Queue - Premier up to 2Mb - Premier up to 4Mb - Premier up to 8Mb
Gold on-peak downloads - 0-20GB - 0-30GB - 0-40GB
Silver on-peak downloads - 20-25GB - 30-35GB - 40-45GB
Bronze on-peak downloads - 25GB+ - 35GB+ - 45GB+

Haven't you had a warning email for exceeding the SUP two months in a row? :shock:

I haven't seen a clear statement yet about the amount that can be downloaded off-peak when the latest round of shaping kicks in-- maybe a knowledgable PlusNet employee could enlighten us!

Theoretically they send a warning email if you exceed 100GB total or 30GB peak

Quote
Warning email
Cause

Monthly usage within the warning email band, at least twice in the previous three months (including last month) – see table above.
Immediate action Warning email only
Recommended steps Reduce usage and schedule large downloads for off-peak hours.
Future actions

The warning email can be sent twice in a six month period. Unsustainable usage for a third time will mean peak-time management is applied.


It's under " Help > Broadband > The PlusNet Broadband Network > Sustainable Usage Policy Guide"

tuitt,

Firstly, hmm did you get your avatar from me ? lolol.

Secondly, the figures given above for the usage limits are for peak times only.

you can use more then this off peak which is midnight to 8AM

the SUP still stands and will not change so you are still bound by the SUP no matter what you do.

SUP
30GB Peak - 4pm till midnight or 100GB off peak midnight till 4pm. (please note you can mix and match)

The new allowances (based on a 2mb account)

20GB peak un restricted up to your line speed
20gb - 25gb - silver queue
25gb+ on bronze queue getting progressively slower.
Peak times for this are 8AM until midnight. This will change back to normal peak hours hopefully in february.

So whatever you use between 8AM and 4PM affects your peak time allowance but not your peak time SUP allowance (im going to lose someone again).

Whatever you use between 4pm and midnight will affect both you SUP peak time allowance and your P2P,FTP,USENET peak time allowance.

And whatever you use between midnight and 8AM will only affect you off peak SUP.

Does this make sense ( knows someone will get lost )
