      Usage allowance

      Hi just a quickie can't seem to find the answer to this, can anyone please tell me if the everyday usage allowance is based on downloads only or uploading as well,its just I used to manage to stay in my limit but I have recently accuired a NAS storage device & as a result my uploading has gone through the roof, It will probably stabilize a bit once I get all my media on it.
      When I was with Zen they only took DLs in to account that's the reason I ask.
      If this is not the case I fear i will be upgrading (I'll hang out as long as possible though).
      Thanks in Advance

      Re: Usage allowance

      I am not sure how uploading to a NAS can increase your upload. The NAS is within your network and nothing to do with the Internet. Are you using a meter which records both internet and LAN usage? This will be misleading as it is not really recording your internet only usage. The Sky User - New Beta Project - SkyUser Bandwidth Meter can be set to record Internet only use.

      OK cheers for that I guess I am using a meter which is recording my lan usage also, I have taken your advice & downloaded the sky user beta version.
