Forgive me if I'm being a complete idiot but do I need to worry about download limits when playing online games (ie world of worcraft etc)? Any suggestions for a decent service too? thinking 2mb, £20 per month, adsl, unlimitd time online, no phone calls included.
using Wanadoo 8MB but it is only as fast as your phone connection 2.2 in my case but they will automatically uprade it when the line is suitable. Costs £17.99 says it`s limited but I have never had it shut off or even a warning despite far exceeding the supposed limits. I think this is a marketing ploy. If they shutdown my connection I will change to Tiscali or another ISP so it is not in their interest to do so.
Tiscali employ a "fair usage" policy,outside of 6pm till 11pm its unlimited but if you d/l lots(as my partners sister did through my shared connection)then they send you a warning email advising you that if you exceed the d/l's their fair usage policy dictates in future they will start capping your service.I just "switched-off" my partners sisters internet as she didn't seem to understand my annoyance at her hogging all the bandwidth for 24 hours. ;-))
cheers all! so i take it i do have to make sure I've got enough download available to play online at lengths (ie 1 hour of playing WoW=5mb of download or like that?) rather than actually downloading music/videos? think I'll go for bt 2mb, but would get Pipex's £14.99 deal although a little wary of their 500min included option for phonecalls. does anyone else have this deal (pipex 2mb)? does it "interfere" at all with your regular bt phone line?
