The phrase "Fair Useage Policy" come to mind.

That's quite impressive - just feel glad you're not being charged for it Smiley

I've noticed recently that a couple of Gb is easy to do. The Mac updates can be large. If you do TV on demand etc. that Sky promote I can see it being higher.

Don't think I've joined the TB club though Tongue

You won't get 100Mbit from PN ...... and as other have said PN do have a "Fair Use" policy.

Plusnet have an Acceptable Use Policy which is not quite the same thing.

Re: How UNLIMITED is Plusnet Fibre

That's true - but buried in it (under hosting) is a mention of excessive use of data transfer - which I suspect nearly a TB a day might count as.

Re: How UNLIMITED is Plusnet Fibre

hosting refers to the 250MB per day limit so not the same

Re: How UNLIMITED is Plusnet Fibre

If I've done the maths right isn't 22TB of use over a month basically going to be close saturating an upto 76Mbps connection pretty much 24/7?

We wouldn't be able to call it Unlimited if there were any limits Wink

Re: How UNLIMITED is Plusnet Fibre

At 44Mbs it's over 50 Days

At 100Mbs it's over 22 Days.

 

So basically yes - it would be maxing out an 80/20
