STM just when you feel like it eh!?


[link to this post]
 
I reset my superhub at 4pm so I could keep an eye on my usage.

I've been limited to 50mbps according to all the speedtests i've done.

How much have I used.?

This area will display a summary of activity since you last reset your Super Hub.

Measurement Period: 0days 2h:21m:46s
Data Downloaded: 352MB
Data Uploaded: 46MB

Pathetic!

The evening STM on 100Mbps shouldn't kick in until 10 GB has been downloaded during the period.

It could be behaving like mine does on 10Mbps. I can hammer the guts out of it in the day (well as much hammering as 10Mbps can give it - several 10's of GB when the STM limit is about 3GB) and never get the STM applied but if I do so then come the evening slot it only takes a little bit of download and the STM kicks in. Why? No idea. Do I care no - my minimum sentence has been served and Infinity is coming my way soon. At least I hope it is.

Nothing on the speed 50mbps is still reasonable however

Should be 10GB!

All the STM has done is stabalise the speed after it kciks in - which is good as it was all over the shop before.

But the times are crud. I am still throttled now and I believe it's well over 5 hours. Infact even when I don't get hit at all its still slow as [censored] this time of night.

When I was on 50Mbps and the speeds were poor and all over the place I stabilised mine and saved money too - I downgraded to 10Mbps.

When I ask to do that I am told it's cheaper for me to stay on 100 then to go to 60

Im going to pay it off. I know it will be £180 but that's fine. My SDSL goes in on Monday so I may only have 2mbps but it will be all mine and I can finally break the chains on STM/Sharing a network!

SDSL will still be a contended product so congestion free is not a defenite. Whos your new isp?

It's 1:1 and it's Spitfire.

Back in the Dialup Days I used to rent a port for £99 a month which gave me 1:1 56k 24/7 connection,. I'd imagine as this runs off an ADSL line £99 a month is more than enough to give someone 2MB 1:1?

Probably somebody on a 100Mbps cable connection flogging it on to 50 punters at £99 a pop smile
