When was the last time you got close to your ISP data cap?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently got this message for the first time and was wondering if there are any hardcore internet users that go over your limits. http://puu.sh/6B4dY.png


My System Specs: (Short list) i7 4770k, GTX 780, many SSD's, a 2 TB HDD(deceased :( ), Corsair 650D. Full list: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/kchriz6097/saved/8dh7YJ


Upgrade Plan: Acquire some Black Noctuas then add 16 or 32GB of 2133MHz memory

Lets just say if we had a data cap of 1 TB we'd go over every month and occasionally double it, yay for unlimited.

the only reason that im not moving for a faster internet connection is that no ISP have unlimited connections for this price.

After seeing your profile pic I think I know what I want for my next present :).

 

Back on topic. Comcast doesn't currently have limits in most of the USA. Or at least they haven't told me. There was one month I blew past 1 TB, and a couple of times I crawled past 500GB. Usually though I think we're somewhere between 100-200GB.

last time i had a limit it was 40GB per month. Apparently you got charged £5 extra if you went over, but we kept getting letters every so often as a warning saying that the next time would be charged but we never did. i found out it worked on a 4 month basis, so only the current month and three months previous would be checked to see if the limit was reached. So by the end of it i kinda had 40,unlimited,40,unlimited each month :P

Currently have no cap, unfortunately that means we're forever locked into a contract with these speeds:

until we change it. Slow and unlimited vs fast(er) and capped, that's Canadian ISP's for you.
