Does upload traffic count towards the monthly 60GB


[link to this post]
 
I'm confused, because in the past I've been told that uploaded traffic counts towards your monthly allowance. But here it says:

"We currently regard 50GB as being a fair maximum usage level of downloads during a rolling 30 day period for Home 8000 customers and 60GB for HomeOffice 8000 and RSL HomeOffice customers."

No mention of uploaded traffic.

Sorry, don't know the answer to this. The FUP was implemented after I left. Also something like this would be a product type decision rather than anything technical. Technical type people would be involved ion the discussion but the final outcome would be lead by product.

Thanks for that.

Blimey, that's some going to upload 100GB a month on a 448kbps upload connection. You must have it constantly running?

Well, interesting to see this thread. To doubly add to the confusion, does it count UDP packets as well as TCP?

I run a freeware games server. I'm on Home 8000 and frequently shift just over 60Gb/30days of mostly UDP traffic - but that's made up of approximately 60% down, 40% up.

Unaffected by FUP so far.

All IP traffic will be measured. The routers don't know or care what's in the IP packet.

Upload traffic isn't counted.
