      Yes, Traffic both ways, Upload and Download.

      Try, 19 Shows a week at 1.2Gb each and then add tons of random downloads.

      ^Wont go into delete as most of the downloads are illegal and I could land an infraction.

      But about 750Gb a month on average is about right.

      Actually, If I was to leave my connection downloading for a whole month, I could do 3780Gb (If my maths was right).

      Sky havent actually said the max is 250Gb, Until they do, Officially say its 250Gb and remove the "Unlimited" clause, Then I will cut down on what I download.

      Since October of 2006, We have been download an average of ~550Gb-750Gb and have yet to be contacted by Sky.
      Most of the content is perfectly legal, As it mainly HD Home Movies from Relatives abroad and uploading back and forth.
      Just the odd TV Shows arent.

      Unlimited but there is a FUP - all providers of a service have one these days. Sky have just not chosen to enforce it as yet

      Hi IAmNotTheEnemy is there any reason why Sky have not enforced FUP yet? Is it a marketing ploy, or do other isp do the same? What circumstances do you think will make them do this ? Do you believe that we could wake up one morning and find that , as it is in their terms and conditions they suddenly enforce it
