      Hows everyone getting on with Fibre?

      Not even 24 hours in and Netmeter says I've downloaded 6.1 GB already! Would usually only hit that within a week on ADSL!

      I seriously hope this package is truly unlimited with no capping

      47Gb today
      150Gb this week. Highly suspect the bulk of that is since yesterday.

      Now look, I'm trying to save up some money for a new NAS with a capacity of around 15TB. Are you suggesting that I could fill this within a couple of days on SFUP?

      I've lost 150Gb of space on mine in two days (I have a capacity monitoring tool monitoring my media server so I can spot trends and work how long before I really need to panic)

      I hope it's just the novelty factor, but I do think I'll be needing more disk space. Currently have provisioned 4TB to it, and I've got 1.5TB free. It's not enough captain.

      Re: Hows everyone getting on with Fibre?

      I get a lot of American TV and I thought of a load of films I wanted yesterday. Being able to pull down 17Gb every hour is both amazing, and worrying. I just know I'll need disks shortly. Hopefully they'll get cheaper before I seriously need more space.

      Wouldn't mind shoving 5 or 6 2TB's in RAID-5 to be honest.
