Capped Downloads?

Hi all Smiley

Is there any way I can check if I have any restrictions on my downloads? I can't download anything greater than 30 kB/sec at the moment (I'm connected at 5184/44Cool. I recieved a mail in my last billing month warning me that I had exceeded 11gig and that restrictions would come into place should I exceed 13gig but nothing after that.

thanks

Gareth.

Hi there,

A lower profile than your sync speed can often occur for a couple of days.

If there was an issue which caused many resyncs, or problems on your phone line, even for a relatively short period, your BRAS profile will drop automatically. This should increase within 3 days, and should then reflect your sync speed.

I take it that is the MSR reading, in fact I am positive.

Plusnet's MSR seems to go no lower than 500Kbps, even when my BT IP Profile was stuck at 128Kbps for weeks, the Plusnet MSR still stated 500Kbps.

Thanks everyone for the pointers and Mand for the confirmation. I'll monitor it for a few days and see Smiley
