Sooo...who are the heavy users?!?

I'll put my hands up, i'm a heavy user, I maximise my connection like crazy (only 1MB, 2MB isn't supported on my line), that's the point of BB isn't it...if all ya do is browse web pages and check your mail, may as well be on dialup (j/k)! :lol:

I'm downloading something literally 24/7, well, from about 7/8am when i go off to work til about 12am when i go to bed...that's why I signed up to this supposedly unlimited service back in June. I'll admit, i'm a compulsive downloader, but I always use/watch everything that gets downloaded. The bulk of it is US TV that hasn't hit our shores yet and music, movies, games...and porn of course, although the majority is TV shows. By the way, don't anyone bother getting on their high horse about the copyright issue, if a movie/game/album is good, I do buy it when it comes out here, I use the net as a kind of preview, I do support the people who make decent products.

Just wondered what other peoples stats looked like compared to mine...

Jun-Jul: 35.86GB
Jul-Aug: 89.6GB
Aug-Sep: 85.89GB

Is my downloading excessive...or are there others like me?!?

I'm by no means a heavy user (although admit there can be certain months it will jump to about 50GB so i probs a bad boy in plusnets eyes) but when your on a 2Mb Premier line and thanks to traffic shaping you cant get download speeds above 20-25Kb (between 1am till 8-9am it goes at normal normal levels). So i think your actually damn lucky that you are managing to get 90GB per month in downloads

Lets face it 95% of what you download is copyrighted stuff , so in really plusnets new policy in the main hits the illegal down loader .

My usage thus far since june has not gone over 40gb and like you mine is mainly copyrighted stuff . IE pron

Surprisingly, only about 15GB a month is porn :shock:

It doens't matter who the heavy users are. 10 users downloading 100gb a month is just the same usage as 100 users downloading 10gb a month.

And +Net have just signed up how many new users at £14.99 a month?

So you think this is going to get better if you're a good boy?

Don't make me laugh!

We'll with my usage you can pretty much tell it was Linux ISOs. If I was downloading masses amounts of illegal content I wouldn't just do it for one month at random Wink
