I think the regulators should make them take out the "up to" in their service descriptions tbh.

I was thinking about looking at Sky. I mean the mass of bandwidth u can use to download shows from their sites.

wannadoo suck, been with them, they kicked me off for using too much bandwidth

then went with tiscali, who kicked me off previously, for using too much bandwidth

AOL, didnt kick me off, but i left them, because they were too slow

i then went to pipex, but i am NOT going back to tiscali ...not again

Dude...seriously how much DO you download?

I would recommend Idnet...but seeing as though 30gb is their max (£1 thereafter) and looking at how much strain you'd put on the bandwidth...I think I'd rather you not on there too

You do know you will get slow speeds eventually on "unlimited" packages as they slow your service down to keep it "cost effective" for them!

I seriously cannot believe you download 500gb a month (as stated in another thread iirc) - I hit 30gb in a month after a fairly large download spree!

Try this. Don`t ask me what the media player thing is that gets blocked, maybe a tune I dunno.

All I can say is I'm glad the OC3D servers don't have a FUP:



That's just one of the servers..

All their packages have a FUP

I'm with F2S, and haven't had an issue with them. Their max is 8meg 50gb monthly limit, but 100gb for an extra £6.

They aren't super strict with their caps either, more soft caps rather than hard ones.

Unforunately Tiscalli have bought their customerbase too, so its Tiscalli now and no longer F2S or Pipex
