      Broadband Usage

      I am on Sky's mid range Broadband package.

      What will happen if I get to my download limit?

      Will I not be able to log on? Will receive any notofication as I'm getting close to the limit?

      How can I check how much limit I have left?

      As far as we know noone has yet been penalized for exceeding their limit. However if people continually abuse it then i'm sure that will change. If you continually exceed it then do the right thing and upgrade its only a fiver extra for unlimited.
      Use a download monitor - theres plenty of free ones - I use Tautology Bandwidth Meter - Internet Traffic Usage Monitor but theres plenty of others
