In reference to adsl24.co.uk/aup/:
What about excessive network usage?
If it's felt that any customer's activities are so excessive that other members are detrimentally affected, ADSL24 Internet Ltd may give the customer generating the excessive web traffic a written warning (by email or otherwise). In extreme circumstances, should the levels of activity not immediately decrease after the warning, ADSL24 Internet Ltd may terminate that customer's services.


In other words, run it "unlimited" 24/7 and you'll probably be cut off.


That is in their Acceptable Usage Policy, i think it would take some doing to do that unless you was really doing something illegal.

what i like is that there is no traffic management so everything works as fast as it can.


therefore your service is not Unlimited?! There is an Acceptable Usage Policy! The punters on Be had the same argument, saying it was unlimited when in fact its not! There will be a cut off whether your ISP choose to use that policy is another matter!

And what about water meters? Some would not have them as it'd mean higher cost. Just like when you go to a all you can eat buffet a fat guy going in with an empty belly for £10 may eat 5 times more than a thin guy paying the same £10.

I much love these arguments!


Have to say no water meters up here smile Well if everyone went to the all you can eat buffet and ate as much as the big fat guy ( no offence to big fat guys btw smile ) The place would either put up prices so as to buy more food or it goes out of business? Sounds familiar doesn`t it! Of course they could do what Pizza Hut does and slows the procession of pizza`s coming out of the oven smile for their all you can eat Lunch buffet laugh

But your assertion was that your service was unlimited. You mentioned it many times. Subtle alteration in your reply so you only mentioned management is disingenuous.

Obviously the AUP of your ISP disagrees with your statements. Treat it like a leased line for a while and see how long it is before ADSL24 is on the phone to you or writing interesting letters.

Why are you in a BT thread in the BTB forum writing this stuff anyway?

At least it is more unlimited than other ISPs and with no traffic management. the chances of getting cut off is pretty slim, try downloading 400Gb a month with Bt and you would soon get a letter or phone call, even if they say they have stopped their FUP.

Try doing 400Gb a month with BT and see where it will get you, they will soon be on your case.

Just because they say they are getting rid of the FUP, I am pretty sure that they will still complain if you use more than they want you to.

They also use traffic management which would not be so bad if it flipping worked. Plusnet could never get it working, Eclipse failed with it, and BT can't get it working either.

Why am I here? because it is a free country, well kind of

It works fine for the most part.

You don't use BT, so how would you know?

Noise / Zyborg - you're here because you hate BT - you always have done. You don't provide any real advice because your judgement is clouded. You'll take any and every opportunity to knock BT however trivial it is.

I thought you'd given up on this crusade of yours - it seems you haven't which is not healthy in my opinion.

Can't say I notice any management here on Infinity, I don't do P2P though and they don't appear to throttle Usenet.
