      .since my mother will not tell me
      That is a bit short-sighted on her part. Does she not realise you can be penalized for going over your limit?

      If you have access to your MySky page(Username and password), you can find out by viewing your bill, then the broadband details.

      If you don't have access, then open the Status page of the monitor http://192.168.0.1, user name admin, password sky and look at the upstream connection speed, these a roughly what the various packages will show-
      448 = Connect 40Gbs
      412-6= Base or Mid, 2Gbs or 40Gbs respectively.
      700+ = Max Unlimited.

      There is no way to tell the difference between Base and Mid with upload. But Base has a download Maximum speed of 2048kbps, if you more than this you are on Mid, but having less does not necessarily mean you are on Base. Post you stats from the router and someone will give you an idea if you can't follow this.
