      Download limit? FUP?

      Is there a download limit on the Max package? Its been a big day, new version of Mandriva Linux out (4GB file) and had to download it twice as I got the wrong file first ... now 8GB added to my monthly total, which is likely high already.

      Anybody been contacted about limits?

      Oooo, the rumour has changed now?

      It was always 250 gig until I read this post.

      Simplerules,

      There have been NO reported contact by Sky on download/upload usage.

      As SkinsLover sys, there have been rumours of limits, but I know I've gone over 150gb in a month, tbh I think I got up to 200gb - but it was a busy month!!

      So I wouldn't worry about downloading 8gb in a day.

      Oh, I recall that some people have stated that to enforce a limit Sky would need to provide a way of checing how much you had used during the month - not sure if this is enforcable, but hey..

      To be fiar last month i hit around 250 gig , and the month before around 140gig.

      I never download around 6pm-midnight as isp claim this is there busy time.

      From everywhere i here it's 250gig a month. Though i know people that go over that easily on a month to month basies and nothing has been said to them so far.
