I have been doing multi-GB downloads at night (11pm-7am UK time) without using any of my 20GB monthly quota. This works brilliantly. I use a shareware program called iGetter to trigger the downloads in the night.
I will also be able to set my Sky box downloading after 11pm, without using my quota.
I now have a reliable internet service, and the price seems reasonable, £34.50/month. I did the installation myself, which saved some money and this made sure it was done correctly and with optimal alignment.
One thing that was not made clear on installation was that I needed to buy a cable router as the modem supports only one attached device. They don't tell you this and won't recommend a device (I bought a Linksys E2500.)
I chose the system because my already poor BT ADSL sevice which used to give me 0.75Mb has slowly degraded, probably as more people use the phone cable for broadband, with just 0.5Mb in 2013 and it now drops out completely for the odd half hour. I am over 7 Km of old cable from the exchange and about 4 Km from my green box, so there are no plans for many years from now to improve the cabled service to this rural area in Gloucestershire.
