Hi,[quote=PughLfC;2141459]Hi, I am currently on Sky’s free 2mb broadband with a 2gb download limit. (…) meaning I have breached my download limit.
My previous knowledge of this was that only a letter of warning was issued by your ISP (Sky) and that was that. Until recently I was alarmed to find on other forums that your ISP charges per mb over, some stated Â£2 PER MEGABYTE! which if true can only be described as an outrage.
Is there any means by which I can see how much I have downloaded or at least if I have gone over my download limit, without contacting my ISP?[/quote]when I had a volume rate, my ISPs offered a website where I could log in and have a look at the amount of data I had already “consumed”. Is there no such thing like “your bill online” offered by your ISP?
Of course there was no notification if I had overriden the limit.
Can someone also tell me what exactly contributes to your downloads?
Anything that is transferred via internet, including mails, websites etc. It does not matter if you open a PDF (for example) directly or store on your HDD befor reading it.
