I'm on water rates so I've leave all my taps running and the bogs are in permanent flush. Can anyone beat my water usage?

Well you won't have a meter if you are on the old style billing, so despite the constant water noise, nobody will know how much.

I expect the local water company will turn up in a week or so trying to locate the leak.

Reminds me of Del Boy and the Peckham Spring smile. Cannot believe it’s been 28 years. Some rateable value customers in certain areas could have a meter as they are/were allowed to return if the meter didn’t save money.

Bet you they wouldn't. Like gas leaks outside - takes them years to notice.

We swapped to a metered water supply decades ago. With a three-bedroom house with a D-level rateable value and just the two of us it made sense. It makes even more sense as my wife has since died.

I could still revert to unmetered if I wished. Perhaps if I suddenly acquired a harem, which would only occur if I became as rich as Sir Philip Green! At which juncture the water costs would be of little consequence.

It is only when the ownership of the house changes that the option to swap back is removed.

If the person that's using that amount of data is in a rural area, or small town, there will degraded coverage for the whole Three user base in that location, especially if they've only limited fibre links to the mast.

Personally remember getting advised that hitting 1TB in a month, 3 months running and Three have policy in place to remove you from the network. I'm guessing that on this occasion they've either not felt the need to restrict service or haven't actually bothered to do so.

Like it's been previously said, with one user hogging that amount of bandwidth and actually breaking the TOS for Three, as we all know the real reason for having uTorrent running 24/7 will end them in a spot of bother at some point. I'd imagine they'll let them do it for 6 months and then smack them with a cease and desist letter.

Also 4G doesn't give the bandwidth to watch Disney+ in 4K, plus all the other stuff the OP claims to be doing at once. The fastest I ever had out of a Three 4G connection was in the Birmingham area, topping out at 50Mbps, and even then the connection could handle more than 2 devices doing something at any one time.

I actually been uploading to youtube 30days maxed out and downloading nonstop hit my best 10.3tb https://ibb.co/1sC65MZ

Any fair usage on three mobile currently on paying 13 pounds a month


Yes, I could beat it. It would take me a day given I've 1.8 Gb down, 220 Mb up.

Doesn't change that there's absolutely no point.

You remind me of another poster banned here countless times that seemed incapable of not bragging about their usage.

A strange quirk but you do you.

That was someone's interpretation of an interview by Mark Jackson with the CEO or equivalent of Three, some time after they introduced the totally unlimited products on 4G/5G, but before February 2020. This post expands on it.

Basically it comes to them saying that above 1TB it could be thought that commercial use was involved, which is not permitted on the Home products. (Of course, we don't know what products the OP is on or at what price).

The Ts & Cs to be found on this page are relevant.

Three's capacity management and fair use seem about as much use as absolute sovereignty.

It would be breathtakingly inept if they didn't know who their heaviest users were and how much they are using.

They keep it quiet they could even store metadata on what the customer is doing, so if they're downloading the same thing repetitively boot them, if they're downloaded copyright material boot them.

Plenty of avenues for Three to take, though they do involve admitting how much they know about the subscribers' traffic patterns.
