So you went over your 250GB already for this month? its only the 10th of the Month -- or does your month end on different days?
Im on comcast and they have a 250GB limit as well, and have never even gotten close to it.. Here are last few months of usage
I would look into better tracking of your usage, so if you do have some big downloads you want to do time them for near month end so if you do go over your only restricted for a couple of days at most.
We have two family members who use Netflix in two separate rooms, and they watch HD content each. I also review PC games, so have to download 15 GB of ISOs from our company weekly for this purpose alone.
We used 250 GB in 21 days.
To be fair, we have only had the connection for 3 weeks and we only found out last week that we can download as much as we want between 00:00 and 08:00 without it affecting the cap. Since we were never informed of this period (in fact, one person at the ISP said it was "unlimited at all times" and one said we'd only be dropped to 2Mbps and not 0.125Mbps), we are currently going through a complaints procedure with them.
They said "it was all over the website" but we ordered by phone. Just because we can
look on the website, doesn't mean people should have to
look at the website. Such conditions should be mentioned during the phone order, especially when asked (which we did).
