    BT phoned my mum up saying the account is been over used, even tho im on a unlimited package

    they asked what the account is been used for and my mum said they its used for gaming and viewing internet TV...

    and they seem to think i got a virus on my pc.

    dunno whats gunna happen next, i only did like 300gb last month and then this month before the start i got a email about the useage is going to be monitored during peek hours... (6-12) and so far i have been sticking to the recommended 1gb in them hours and all other time sticking downloads on.

    already done 80gb this month.

    so i wounder what they're going to do next...

    are they allowed to report me for possible piracy? or any crap like that?
    or would they just kill my account/contract with them?

    they already know so why they ask?

    sounds like a bad package deal whichever way,
    just call them and ask them.

    They have a cap of 40GB on their services these days and that will include you even if you originally signed up for unlimited.

    They will not report you but they will throw you off the service for excessive bandwidth usage like they did to me.

    Yeah, fuck 'em, move to a better ISP if they ditch you.

    40GB is a stupid cap. I've seen 30GB caps advertised as a capped service (not with BT), and they've got the balls to call 10GB more than that "unlimited"?

    I truly think ISPs that act like this should be done for false advertising.

    Dunno about anyone else but BT didn't throw me off the service for going over the cap limit. They just charge 1 per gig you go over it!!!! The fucks! Thats why I left them. Even though it's been over a month since I moved from BT they are still chasing me for some internet bill I allegedly never paid, even though I never missed one payment.

    I went over 3 times in as many months the first time I got an email warning me then they would start to charge but would waive the fee this time. Next month I only went over by a couple of gigs (slow month ) and the 3rd and final month I went over by 12gigs which was included in my final bill paid in full. Now I'm getting various emails and letters saying I still owe them 58 quid!!!

    Twice now I've contacted BT's billing Dept (another off shored call centre) and twice they have stated that I don't owe them anything and if anything I am probably due a credit due to leaving mid month.... yet today I got a bill.

    It's all PISH, OFTEL need to boot BTs arse!

    if your in a ntl telewest area id suggest you try them.
    i was thinking about moving to talk talk 20 deal,
    but i couldnt live on only 50gb. and i know telewest is good,
    i was on the 4mb package, but dropped down to 2mb to save some cash.

    when i was with talktalk, they used p2p packet filtering, things got that bad p2p services became totaly unusable

    they may have now altered their policy on this, but check carefully before switching to them

    BT are a complete pile of e-donkey sh*t and always have been

    I moved into a house which had NTL which I though was well shady at the time - but, although their after sales service sux arse in a big way, the only problem I've had is with their dynamic proxy which means I need to reboot my router every now and then.

    I'm paying 25 quid a month for a 4gig down 1gig up which is pretty reliable ... so I think that's a decent enough deal ... especially when I read your BT woes
