      Do Sky Count the upload as well

      I have a freind who is on BT option 1 and has a 5GB bandwidth limit and that includes both download as well as upload. So do Sky count the uploads as bandwidth like BT do ?

      I would think all ISP's do,not just BT. I have netmeter & it adds them both together to give me daily total

      well, the ads say a '40GB download cap' so i'd miagine its download only....best call Sky direct really and see what they say - or find the T&C's and give them a read

      Funnily enough Sky do not mention download limits in their T & Cs. In the Sky Broadband info panel the term used is 'Monthly Usage Cap'. I would interpret this to mean up and downloads.

      I would have thought it would be both up and downloads although you would have thought they would make this clear within their T&cs to stop this confussion.

      I think they make it pretty clear here-
      From Sky BB page

      SKY BROADBAND PRODUCTS


      Download speed
      Monthly Usage Cap
      Monthly fee
      Base
      Up to 2Mb
      2GB
      FREE
      Mid
      Up to 8Mb
      40GB
      5
      Max
      Up to 16Mb
      Unlimited*
      10

      40GB
      17

      * Subject to FUP

      Doesn't paste too well, but you get the drift
