Confused about new cap limit

Hi Guys,

I'm a bit confused about the new cap that was put on yesterday, just wondering how I can monitor my bandwidth usage because plus net has started this in the middle of my month, so I have already downloaded more than their 50GB limit for this month, since I have another 6 days to go.

Does this mean because I have downloaded more than this in my previous month that I will be put on the contention thing.

Or does it mean I will have to go through each of the days starting from the 4th to the 15th day from that and then add up how much I downloaded in that time to make sure I do not hit the 50GB or 100GB limit?? month limit. Which sounds like a bit of a pain too me.

Also is their anyway I can see how much I downloaded in the peek times, so I can see for myself how much I download at these times, so I can better manage how I download stuff.

Thanks

Confused about new cap limit

The limit being used for those that got the emails was > 150GB at peak time, over the last 3 calendar months.

The %0.1 of customers that were emailed were asked to keep their usage below 50GB over the next 14 days (just in case anyone is confused - that would be 100GB a month - something many people are neglecting to mention) but I would expect if you use < 150GB at peak times you would be fine...

Mmhh IC, so if I was download 80GB say in the middle of the night and 20GB at peek time it would probably be ok, but it I were to download 100GB all at peek time, than that's a big no no.

Hi there,

The Comms team have stated that if you regularly download less than 100gb per month with the majority of your downloads occuring during off peak hours you will not cause a problem.

Hope that helps.

Although they keep changing their minds as to whether there is off peak time, and if there is one when it is!
