Does the announced 15GB cap to be imposed on Plusnet USENET servers constitute a change in the Terms and Conditions?

Probably not (without reading through all the T&C and ammendments).
It'll be hidden away somewhere in double-speak and ambiguous wording

USENET cap? does this mean it is now going to only allow us to download 15gb from their own usenet servers, or usenet servers in general? if in general then thats a bit unfair.

15GB per month on Plusnet servers, all third party servers will continue to be strangled by Plusnets traffic shaping during peak hours.

See the announcement for your self here:

Requested my Mac last night. (not had a response yet!)

Sorry Plusnet but can't stand any more limitations and throttling on external Usenet accounts.

I doubt I'll be the last.

PlusNet's usenet servers weren't all that good anyway. Anybody who takes Usenet seriously has a premium account and the new 15Gb limit that will push Usenet into the Silver shaping category will mean an increase in performance for the serious people Tongue

It will be the silver for Plusnets USENET only, 3rd party servers will remain strangled in bronze.

Which basically means that anyone serious about USENET usage really should question continuing with Plusnet...that is an incredibly bad policy I think. I wonder what the imapct has been on the customer base as I am on the move now along with most on the thread that raised the issue intially.
