Is unlimited actually unlimited

Hi
I was just wondering if unlimited fibre is actually unlimited or actually "fair usage".  I was just curious as when you go on to view your usage the bar only shows up to 52gb.  As I stream tv (due to having no external tv ariel) I was just worried that I could in fact go over what you would class as "fair usage
Many thanks

unlimited is unlimited - the scale changes to match the usage - and at 52GB you aren't even trying hard

It's truly unlimited. As oldjim suggests the graph will change scale depending on how much you've used.

They have customers who download eye-watering amounts of data. Shocked
