      I haven't seen anyone on here or somewhere like Digital Spy saying they have been contacted over this and if and when it does happen I guess we will hear about it.

      Re: Has anyone?

      Ive not heard of anyone being contacted.

      I just run a LAN bandwidth monitor on my pc to monitor the amount of data downloaded/uploaded.
      Im not sure how people cope with a 2gb usage limit, ive had bb a week, and hardly downloaded anything tbh, just using the net,emails etc, watching a few you tube vids and usage is at 2.75gb.
      That would have been my month blown,lol

      When I was with BT they kept going on about this but again I never heard off any one being even warned let alone kicked off for being a heavy user. Unless they have the software installed that can keep an eye on people then I can't see anyway that can do anything.

      I did with BT, they sent me a snotty email because we downloaded 16gb on a 2gb limit one month, they said if it happened again I would be put on a more expensive package i.e. 30 a month Which is one reason I switch to Sky.
