This feels a bit naughty...


[link to this post]
 
I have a service that allows unlimited online backup. I also have an unlimited FTTC product. So I'm currently backing up my hard drives, which amounts to hundreds of GBs of data. I've never transferred this much data in a month before and find it hard to believe that anyone at Plusnet looking at my data usage would not think I'm abusing their service. At the back of my mind is the concern that sooner or later Plusnet are going to take action against heavy users, as they've done before. tongue

They won't care less about upload usage anyway.

From the sounds of it this is the initial backup so I would say not.

Rather not say until I've tested it for a while, it may or may not have teething troubles in some areas.

Is WBC capacity symmetrical? So if an ISP pays for 100Mbit of capacity from BT, their customers could download at ~100Mbit AND upload at ~100Mbit? Or for my scenario require 200Mbit to have been purchased?

Over simplified I know, 95th percentile charging and all that..
