Do you make these things up adslmax?
There is no such usage cap mentioned in their t and c.
They advertise their broadband as : Truly unlimited downloads – stream and download as much as you like
Taken from : SSE Superfast Fibre broadband / SSE Ultrafast Fibre
Broadband: D511 product range
We offer two broadband packages in the D511 product range which provide varying
download speeds but each has an unlimited data usage allowance. However there are
factors affecting the speed of data transfer and hence the amount of data that can
be downloaded/uploaded on any given day, such as your maximum line speed using
these fibre products as well as network capacity. Adverse weather conditions, internal
wiring, electrical interferences, network congestion and technical restrictions of your
browsing device, may all affect your data usage and are beyond our control
They do have traffic management though
Broadband Traffic Management Policy
Our network operator undertakes traffic management to ensure that our customers
receive optimum performance at all times.
The principles of this network management policy are:
• To make sure that time-critical applications like Voice over Internet Protocol
(VoIP) are always prioritised.
• To protect interactive applications like web-browsing and Virtual Private
Network (VPN) from non-time sensitive download traffic.
• To flex the network under demand to cope with normal peaks and troughs
from day to day and month to month.
• To flex the network in the event of unusual demands in traffic or disaster
situations such as a network failure.
• To provide a 'quality of service' effect, meaning multiple applications running on
the same line interact with each other effectively, and use of high demand protocols
like Peer-to-Peer (P2P) doesn't swamp time-sensitive traffic such as online gaming or a
Traffic types are identified in real-time based on a combination of port, source IP
address and DPI signature detection. This allows our network operator at any given
time to manage the network capacity and prioritise time sensitive traffic by reducing
the throughput of the other less time sensitive protocols
