      Downgrading from MAX

      Been on Sky MAX for about 7 months now. Do I have to wait until 12 months before I can downgrade my package?

      MAX costs me 10 a month at the moment, how much is MID these days? Is it 0 for Sky customers?

      Is there any way of telling how much I'm using each month at the moment in terms of downloads? (Download speed is not going to be an issue for me since I can only get about 2.5Mbps at the moment due to distance from exchange).
      Every day when I wake up I thank the Lord I'm Welsh

      MID costs 5 per month

      Use NETMETER to monitor downloads great piece of software

      I don't think you can do it unless your speed is very low. I remember one user who was offered a downgrade because their speed was very low, below 512kbps, I doubt if you will as your speed is not too bad. You can always ask, they can only do it or say no.

      Mid costs 5, Base is free.

      I assume NETMETER only starts recording from the time you install it?

      Remember that Netmeter monitors all network traffic, this includes transfers between PCs in a network. Not much of a problem if you only have one PC or don't move files around, but makes it difficult if you have several PC networked and transfer large files between them. It will also not record usage by games consoles and I think it only works with Windows. These apart, it is a good piece of kit
