Just signed up for AAISP getting installed on the 7th so quite excited.
I have never been on a metered broadband before so have just been doing some reading up on what to expect. I have read that DDoS attacks can use up my data, is this accurate? If so how fast can they eat it up?
The reason I am going to AAISP is because I play real money wagers and tournaments on CoD PS4 and AAISP has a great reputation for latency and stability. As a competitive player I have been subject to several of these attacks over the years. The worst time they kept my virgin connection down for almost 3 hours and is just something that happens when playing for money..
Am I correct that an external DDoS can use up my data? Is this harder for people to do/likely to stop if I use a ipv6 connection? Can I take any additional measures short of permanently playing on a VPN to avoid this? Any local stuff I can do to stop this kind of attack on my AC68U or anything I can agree with AAISP where they block suspicious high bandwidth use or cut me off if I use over a certain limit in a day?
Thanks for any help, I signed up for 1tb to be on the safe side but really don't want things like this to end up spoiling it!
Just spoke with virgin, my highest month in the past 12 months was 250gb so I think I will be fine on that allowance. My average is only 150gb will virgin include any useage due to DDoS? Am I correct in thinking that unused allowance adds up each month? If so would there be a cheaper viable option that allows some headroom? Its no big deal if not but might be worth avoiding any significant overkill if the allowance carry's over and will soon stockpile up..
