Then why wouldn't me churn away to other ISP instead of investing in a more silent computer?CoreyPlover wrote:There are many options available to you which would enable you to harness the 2am-8am off-peak window. Do you have an ultra noisy computer that prevents sleep? If so, invest in a more silent computer, or a netbook that you can locate in a different room. You can now even get routers which have a hard drive in them that can schedule downloads themselves without any need for a computer.ManUtdFans wrote:"4.

- It depends on the time range, are you going to keep the pc on from mid-night till 8am? I don't know if the pc sits in your bedroom, may be not, but this is in my case. My pc sits in my bedroom.
- 6 hours for me is fine if the time range is 6am to 12pm.
The entire purpose of off-peak as a high quota download period is that it is not convenient for everyone. It operates on the same principles as off-peak electricity rates (water heaters that operate overnight, etc).
The point is still the same: we are not opposing the off-peak download period, this is Exetel staffs trying to mislead us, 'BUT' we are opposing the so much reduction in the off-peak download time from 2am-12pm to 2am-8am.
