Hi,

This depends on what your definition of a heavy downloader is. Its true that excessive downloading will see your connection being managed, but only if you do it for several months running.

The Help section of our website has a more detailed explanation of the Sustainable Usage Policy

Hi guest,

As a BB+ customer, I would have thought that you knew the answer to that question.

I wonder what the purpose of your post is? Wink

Several ?

So 6 Months of constantly exceeding your limit is OK ?

But on the SEVENTH month ............. you get the dreaded e mail ?

If only it were that simple

Hi,

Anyone who reads the SUP page should be aware of the time periods involved. I used several simply to refer to the fact that you don't get managed straight away, but instead your usage over a period is taken into account.

Sorry about this but I've been unable to find it.

So how many months is it then, please ?

Well I've read that a few times.

Still not sure.

I was looking for something a bit simpler and in straight forward terms.

Can you go over your limit twice every three months ?

Or

Twice every six months,

WITHOUT getting the dreaded e mail ?

Before you are throttled (peak time) you have to use either:

100GB 3 times in six months
30 GB 3 times in six months
100GB and 30GB peak twice in three months

Does that apply if i am paying over £22 per month?

Why did someone say I was on BB+ earlier, I am not.

I think that was reffering to someone who was using the guest account. It would help people to answer questions if guest users signed posts with thier name or something similar.
