Yep off-peak generally has no limit, but there is an unofficial figure. Plus have said that anyone using more than 100Gb would not be welcome and they would look towards moving them to a different ISP.

Mind you, 100Gb would take a fair amount of battering and very few ISP's now would let you get away with it these days.

I dont believe they did say that at all!!
I am happy to be proven wrong however!

I think it was more along the lines of, if you regularly d/l more than 100GB on option1 then you should consider upgrading to the next option.

Hmm, can't remember exactly - you could be right. I am going on a post which was made here some time ago, which (at the time) I am sure the emphasis was on moving elsewhere rather than upgrading account type.

This is what has been being said for some months.

From what I recall the 100GB guideline of old was always that, and just whilst PN were migrating to their new traffic shaping model. When full automation came in a few months ago, this 100GB off peak guideline was questioned on the forum a few times, but the answer has always been consistent - there are no off peak limits.

Of course, there is always the caveat about sustainable usage, and PN's right to change the terms, or take action against damaging activity, but the bottom line is that off peak is 100% unmanaged.

Looking at what they say, sustainable usage now only applies to peak time.

I'm amazed, but there you are.

If it became necessary on an individual account, they would only have to refer to the T&Cs, in particular the acceptable use:
