      Bandwidth

      Hi,

      I am on the max package with unlimited bandwidth subjected to a fair use policy. Well I am a heavy user I game, stream audio and video, VOIP, download ... ect. I'm sure I'm about 40gb a month will SKY cut me off if I go to wild? What you guys recommend, I went on this package for the reason of me using alot but the fair use policy is getting me worried

      Thanks

      Re: Bandwidth

      No one knows exactly what the FUP is, below is what is believed to be for Max the acceptable amount of bandwidth a month.

      1. Connect - 40GB
      2. Base - 2GB
      3. Mid - 40GB
      4. Max - 250GB (Unofficial)


      So don't got too mad and you should be alright.

      Re: Bandwidth

      With 40gb a month on Max I don't think that you would need to worry tbh.

      Re: Bandwidth

      The unofficial limit for Max is 250gb which is a huge amount. There has been no known case of anyone been kicked off for exceeding this.

      At the end of the day, if you are exceeding the limits Sky would contact you, and from what I understand, inform you to cut back. Now... I believe if Sky are to enforce these limits, Sky should give you a way of knowing what you are using, but that is my belief.

      You can measure your own usage, by using some software, however this will not allow you to measure bw used by an Xbox or PS3 etc.

      If you look on that page, you can see some monitoring tools, if you want to use them, hope that helps.
