Whats with the double speak ?

Quote
There's no limit on how much you can use, but once you've used your 10GB allowance, additional usage is charged at £5.00 per 5GB.

So if I have no limit how come you keep telling me I do ?
And the usage info is very confusing.

Hi BorgWales
I'm on the plusnet 'value package'  but it has a maximum  usage of 10Gigabyte per month
things change at midnight when you can download all you like untlll 8 AM in the morning
plusnet do have unlimited usage but its in  their top of the range business package

Seems quite clear: Your monthly subscription includes 10GB of usage, but you can pay for as much extra as you want.
Remember you are unique - just like everyone else

@ BorgWales - As it says there's no limit to how much you can download but you'll pay more ( £5 per 5Gb) if you go over the monthly allowance for your Value package, between 8am & midnight - midnight to 8am is unlimited.
