Do you buy a dozen eggs and then throw out 4 of them because you don't want to abuse the egg farmer?

If they can't do unlimited that's fine, All I want is honesty.

Can I ask one simple question:

If I have unlimited off peak, can I download as much as I want in off peak without worrying about having my service terminated because I am 'unprofitable'?

Re: No limit = Unlimited

So, going by your theory the limit is somewhere between 89GB (A figure that I can't see) and 1000GB.

Re: No limit = Unlimited

What about the unlimited plans? By definition, "no limit". But, remember that Exetel has always had the discretion to terminate your connection. So even though you might interpret the contract as allowing 1TB of downloads per month, the contract also says Exetel can terminate your service with adeq...

Re: No limit = Unlimited

The uncharged plans have a clearly stated download allowance that is updated each month on the User Facilities. If you go over that limit then you will be asked to find another provider. If, currently, 89 gb off peak (on top of your peak allowance) is not sufficient for your needs then Exetel proba...

If they answer that question then they cease being unlimited!

So I don't think they will answer.

Why not just make off peak 2x peak? The 5GB 'abuser' can have 10GB off peak and I can have 90GB off peak. Those who pay more get more. Everyone happy?

Can't change plans, I am on the highest adsl1 plan.

I won't be asked to leave. I plan to use every GB I am allowed, not 1 less or more!

Why not find out? Just jack up the plan costs for high downloaders and they will leave. Then you can be happy.

I don't know what the speed actually is but it's unable to bring up this forum page.

If you weren't about to get on a plane I would suggest you apply the shaping to yourself for a few minutes and try.

Re: Change to AUP - Section (d)

I downloaded just over 100GB. I can't even open this forum if I use my exetel connection. I wonder if exetel will be getting lots of support calls from people whose internet performance has died for no reason and with no notification?

Might be good advice for an isp but for Australia I would prefer "If you love it but it's broken, try and fix it".

Regardless of how many customers, the bandwidth doubled.
