      Would this kind of download cause concerns with Sky?

      Hey guys, I'm wanting to download the following torrent but the file size is pretty big (almost a months download usage when I was on ADSL) If I was to successfully download it on Fibre, do you think it would raise concerns with Sky?

      Nope. Other users have been happily downloading 250GB+ a month without issue.

      Download away!

      You mean to say that you didn't host a Eurovision party and invite all the neighbours around for the evening?

      The only way sky might care is if they get a complaint from the copyright holder, or a NPO to disclose your detail.

      Frequently doing 250GB + on mine at home according to SNMP/Cacti i've done 273.97GB down and 54.14GB up in the past 30days.
