      Just a question

      At the moment I'm on the unlimited package and I've heard that it has a 100GB cap. Is it a peak time cap or all day cap?

      cheers

      This 100GB cap is an urban myth.

      The 100gb is a figure that was discussed when Sky first launched BB, the thing is as no one has yet tested this theory we cannot give you a definitive answer.

      My understanding was that the 100gb included all data in and out over your monthly billing period (peak and off-peak) If you consistently went over this figure per month then you would be put on a badboy pipe with all the other heavy downloaders.

      I could be wrong though

      Until Sky confirm this I'm treating it as an Urban Myth.

      i think the figure was more 110-125Gb if you done this 2 or 3 months in a row you would be in trouble with sky
