      Smile Contemplating Sky Max - 250/300gb PM?

      Hi,

      Im currently with Be (bethere.co.uk) and on a heavy month (usually in the autumn/winter time) I can download around 250/300gb data. I have been downloading this fine with Be and no complaints. How lucky will I be with SkyMax?
      We are moving house and am thinking of getting the see-surf-speak package with sky max.

      Any thoughts and comments are welcomed.

      thanks

      chris

      Re: Contemplating Sky Max - 250/300gb PM?

      I'm on Sky Max and really happy with it. Thanks to a couple of great members here helping out with my wiring problems.

      As for the FUP i'm told it's 250gig a month? Though i'd like to know this myself as i'm on 175gig this month already.

      Does anyone know what the limits are?


      Thanks

      Max is advertised as 'Unlimited' subject to FUP, see the Sticky just above. What Sky consider excessive is not known, but over 250 Gb has been mentioned.

      Re: Contemplating Sky Max - 250/300gb PM?

      I am like yourself, A heavy downloader/uploader.

      In the 1st month, I did way over 350Gb, Nothing from Sky.
      Since then (Its been a year) on average, Total bandwidth (Up & Down) a month has been ~500-600Gb with 4 PCs and 2 Laptops and a Xbox connect most of the time and Sky havent mentioned anything, Though a Tier 3 guy mentioned it when we had a few probs, But nothing was taken of it.

      So they can actually measure it! Why can't they give us a usage meter, then everybody would be happy.. well maybe not everybody.. but a lot would.
