Fair usage

No mention of 100Gb usage for the broadband premium smile, I have been over for the last few months.

Seems it has been reworded to be more vague now.

To catch people out and then try and sting them for additional usage?

They can't sting you for additional usage if they haven't set it out in the policy.

Tesco got away with it for 3 months before they were forced to put 100GB in their policy.

Essential 10GB cap - the rest no is does not say but it does say they have a FUP and they monitor network traffic and if you do anything illegal they can and will cut you off and pass all info to the Police/Government Agencies.

SO no , i'd rather not sign up to the GCHQ's network thank you very much!

In regards to the FUP this was written 5 days AFTER the pdf you have linked to was published.

Still says 100GB so I guess you being over is lucky but you could be e-mailed and warned at any time.

You get what you pay for.

I'm not sure which PDF you refer to as I didn't post one but the monitoring of the network for illegal activity and reporting to the appropriate authorities is no different to what most providers would do.

Looking at Virgin they too will report you should they find you transferring illegal content on their network.

I wouldn't say Post Office is an ideal choice for post people and should I live elsewhere I wouldn't pick them but with my speeds and location I have little choice in provider and little chance of going over 100GB

If ANY provider becomes aware you are carrying out criminally illegal activities on their network they will act.

Thought as much. So post office is no more GCHQ than anyone else.
