      If it is, nobody has reached it yet, it is really just about the only unlimited package out there, well for 15pm or less anyway.

      Re: What does unlimited really mean?

      Seriously, others have asked this before.

      My normal usage on one particular PC alone is normally around 300Gb per month. Just now it is showing over 500Gb in the last month.

      This isn't a challenge for you to try and beat, but an indication that you can hammer your connection and not worry about it.

      Dodgy? I make sure that the sites & more specifically the torrents I download are good. It's pointless downloading something which you can't view or has a soundtrack that is wildly out of sync.

      The vast majority of my torrents are specifically related to TV series or films that are available to view on the TV.

      I regard their recordings in the same light as video tapping the same programmes off the air.

      The stats I quoted are for both download & upload figures over 31 days.

      If I wanted to really hammer my connection, I could easily thrash those speeds, but as it is I already have more than enough choice of viewing & listening material available.

      If only people moral view and the legal stance were the same. No matter how just you think you are, it's still copyright theft and you could land yourself being taken to court where you would probably lose.

      Re: What does unlimited relly mean?

      This is a great to hear. I've recently started using a-nova' UK torrent site again, mainly for the same reason as Scubbie said. I have quite an unreliable PVR so its a god send to be able to download them when it fails. When I was with AOL they would limit the speed of torrents so it was impossible most of the time to seed anything back. I like having the freedom with Sky.
