Thread: Is 50Gb Enough D/L Per Month?

  1. #1

    Surprised/Amazed

    Hi,

    I'm in the UK and currently have a 512k/256k Adsl service which I am quite pleased with and it has un-capped Download amounts, but the company have now offered me a 2Mb service for roughly the same price but it has a 50Gb download limit per month now this also says "not metered during off-peak times from 1am to 6am".
    Do you think this is a good deal or do you think theres a catch somewhere?
    I use emule and some sessions I download over a Gb, but this is a 12-14 hour period but im not on it all the time (I turn off comp. during work hours).

    Cheer!

    what happens when u go over the cap ? i bet u then get a huge bill which u then need to pay for , same thing happened to my brother in law today he got a bill telling him to pay 144 euros cause he went over the cap . i would actually stay with the line u got now .
    Open your mind

    It all depends on how much you think you're going to download per month.
    50 Gb is roughly about 12 dvd-r's.

    But if you really download more than 50gig every month,you're probably just downloading for the heck of it if you ask me.

    I'd go for the 2mb capped connection considering it's about the same price for what you have now.
    And if it's unmetered between 1 an 6 am I would use those hours to dl the bigger files.

    hmm...asspie

    just on principle, I wouldn't deal with any ISP or plan that restricts its customers total bandwidth usage.

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    paying for service and you pay more for going over a limit. Not my kind of ISP =\

    I think its about 1.50 per Gb after the limit which is pretty steep!
    I suppose i could check on a regular basis...

    Well I wish we had a 50Gb limit over here instead of the 10Gb limit we got now
    And it's $5 per extra 5Gb.

    hmm...asspie

    I hate limits.
    I wouldn't go for it, unless you plan to download only at night (it doesn't meter it from 1am to 6am?).

    Dont forget also that just looking at webpages and checking your mail counts towards your limit each month with alot of isps. But in your case i dont thinks its gonna be a problem there giving you over 1.5gb per day
