    It also might mean they are not putting a quota on the top tier but even if they do which will be a significant change for VM the download quota on 100Mb is surely enough? What are people downloading if they need more than 10 GB in the evening? Quotas higher than that would suggest to me that they are business users and should probably be using a leased line.

    20000MB between 10 and 3
    10000MB between 4 and 9pm

    depends what times of day you are getting that amount of traffic, i assume its got peak times and isn't an even spread?

    Never got into minecraft but I assume your uploads could be an issue as well then if you are running a server as they have even lower limits in place for them. Fingers crossed then that they keep the new top tier limit free for you the fact that the table doesn't show a 120Mb tier does suggest to me that it will remain quota free but you never know with VM...

    Edit: just noticed that the upload limits are higher in the evening than the download limits on the higher packages which seems a bit strange but might help you...

    And this is why Internet TV and download-only consoles will have trouble... ISPs holding back technology... nothing changes

    But your quota will double when they upgrade your connection to 100Mb for free, 10GB for normal use is more than enough. If you want more than 10GB then upgrade to the120Mb tier (assuming it will be quota free).

    On any package you are throttled during peak times regardless. You dont even get 10GB to use as you please, you get 10GB of anything but XY as we will nerf you regardless. It also has a habbit if breaking legitimate p2p software like WoW and throttling that too. I am lucky, I dont have any limit, any restriction just use as you please.

    I can burn through any cap in a day without resorting to illegal filesharing. 4 computers, 3 of which are owned by gamers and all three run Steam/WoW. With no way to distribute game content updates centrally that means three individual downloads on patch days!

    Of cource, however our peek is at about 5pm, just done the math and it should be fine however on the current 100 line upload isnt throttled.

    Indeed thats what it suggests however after speaking with VM yesterday they have no infomation at all on the 120 line other than when its comming to each area.

    Is it just me or are those tables confusing?

    After speaking with VM there is an addon called upgraged upstream but you have to pay extra that then throtles you, normal VM madness.

    My speed went down to around 1Mb last night just by watching ITV online for the Chelsea match and downloading a couple of Linux LiveCDs...

    I will change the "for free" with "for a small extra monthly cost". It's not free. It's Appletalk. (and I don't mean in the networking terms either, I mean the stuff you find lying around in fields full of cows)
