Came across some interesting articles while browsing the web.
Ok - these are all UK websites but it's a hot topic over there as the concept of data capping is relatively new. Alot of ISPs in Europe now are taking to capping now and it's spreading like a plague.

Whinge whinge whinge.

Learn to live with it or pay for the none capped plan. There are plans if you wish to use everything and have open downloads with no capping.

Yet you can't help yourself, you have to respond.

Not knowing what an ing twat was, I did a google & boy did I find heaps of ing twats.
Results 1 - 10 of about 3,420 for ing twats. (0.24 seconds)
Looks like we're in good company, there are heaps of us about.

I've just come from gameplanet forums and man, I thought those forums were full of nerds posting pointless comments but some of you lot are just as bad.

Interesting articles those barmy...somehow I can't see that an anticap site will do the slightest bit of good here in little old NZ though. A mate of mine in London (about half of all kiwis live there) says that alot of people are backlashing over the data capping there but then some of the ISPS were making it 1GB where people had been used to unlimited so its understandable.
Once they offer something good then it's hard for them to take it away. Difference is here is that data caps have been in from the start and they will be here to stay, whatever anyone says or does.

i am not sure of the whole thread, if i can see it, first timer, me.

when i signed up for j/stream i was concerned about the little matter of 5 cents per Mb over my 1 GB.

the xtra tech told me xtra is changing all plans soon, when i ma in excess of my data limit, thye slow down my connection.

maybe you all know Telecom is doing this already.

I forked over $286 for extra for going over my cap last month.

Nearly enough to buy a new video card.

Shattered.

when i signed up, xtra forgot to put me on their billing system for 4 weeks, now with 1 gb, and 28 days later i used half only. i do admit i have been in hospital for a week.

how much over your cap did that equal then. $286 must buy a heap of data!

that is worse than 5 cents, i do not have time to check, i am glad i took it easy. i see jetstream as puting the whole www on my hdd as a read only hdd, quick, always on, as oposed to a dial-up.

updates, and information, researching while i write etc

Nope, you'll get to meet the boys (and girls) club soon enough. They've all got plastic hats and shields - the self appointed moderation team.

Using the word BOLLOX brings them out from behind their plastic shields I am sure
