When did PN increase Premier allowances...

Getting a bit worried that I was hitting 9gb only a week after my allowance reset.. never usualy a problem, just getting a bit carried away this month....

Imagine my suprise when I saw this...

Premier Option 1 24GB 30GB
Premier Option 2 36GB 45GB
Premier Option 3 48GB 60GB
Plus 10GB 12.5GB

I know it went up from 10gb to 13gb before restrictions were imposed, and they were staggered speed decreases... now the limit has doubled, with a flat restriction of 128k for those who exceed.

Dont remember receiving informaiton of this...!!! Is this correct...Huh

If you look here, https://portal.plus.net/support/broadband/network/traffic_management.shtml it still says 13GB etc. Where did you get your info from?

saturnnet,

You are confusing SUP with traffic management. They have different limits before management is applied.

Yes, it is still confusing.

daznet,

PN changed the allowances in April 2006 and again August 2006.

See the SUP tables in the PUG product info section here.

You're right, I was and it is!

Why on earth they don't wrap it up into one policy with one usage table is beyond me.

How does it square with this?

Check the product usage tab.

Perhaps because they can advertise the 30Gb sustainable use policy, and quietly not mention the fair usge policy which for some people means they can't use much more than 13Gb because VPN traffic gets lumped into the same bucket as other encrypted traffic and gets throttled above that point.

Or, as the saying goes:
Never attribute to malice that which can be easily explained by incompetence...

Exactly!

Most of those limits don't apply to me, even with my connection unthrottled I can only get speeds in the 17-20GB band anyway.
