      No one has reported any action being taken whatsoever, however I wouldn't like you to report that you were the one

      Just don't take the mickey, I am sure they are turning a blind eye.

      Re: Download Limit

      hey nothing really to worry about i recently went over the limit and they cut off my downloads,
      this can also affect online gaming etc.
      im not sure if you get a bill though.

      Hope this helped.

      You will not be cut off or have your download speed reduced. If you are on Connect you may have your download speed reduced by throttling, but you will not be cut off. Now if you are on an LLU connection and you go over your limit twice in 6 months you will be automatically upgraded. If you use over 10Gb on Base, I would imagine they would stick you right up to Unlimited.

      As pointed out, this thread is years old, how did you manage to find it?
