    Default Re: ADSL with Ihug, and How likely am I to break over 10Gigs

    Yes kiwibeat.. I know the feeling.

    So basically you all doubt I'll come close to the limit.

    Now, one more question...

    Is the Usage Monitor actually acurate (To within 50 Megs)??

    Hey, just to let you know, I'm with Xtras Jetstart,

    I don't do much download or gaming but i DO do a LOT of web surfing. *you know how much!*

    To my suprise, I'm only using under 1.5gb EVERY MONTH. can't believe it!..... to be honest, ever since the second month I had ADSL, I'm trying to use up as much as I can, however I can say its very challenging to... for some reason.

    Don't think you'll be over, unless you have thousands of computer all networked up in your house. * in that case, it'll probably be called a "server" which is illegal (against the terms)....*

    You don't say what you are going to be doing. I still use Xtra 56K dialup with NO LIMIT on Megabytes or Gigabytes. I pay 24.95 per month and it matters not whether International or NZ. When I want to download a 530 Meg ISO I use a download manager so I can resume. This doesn't happen very often. I normally just resume the download when I'm off to the sack.

    Yes.... I would like Jetstream too but I have a limited budget for my hobby so that's where I'm staying.

    I think it might just be very unlikely for you to go over 10 Gigs / Month unless you spend all your time on downloading video clips, MP3's, ISO's etc.

    Having said that.... I just have ONE computer connected and just my Wife and Myself use it.

    I am with Paradise and get very close to my 10GB each month. Last month I nearly used it all within 2 weeks.

    Also one other thing to remember is that all trafic to your IP that you are connected to is counted. If someone suddenly starts doing a DOS attack on you it will count on your account as well.

    ...And the usage meter works? Or has it been killed altogether?

    Hmm.... Good point..

    1. I'll install a firewall

    2. I reboot my PC a couple of times a day switching between linux and xp and 2K, so my IP is never gonna be the same for long ;-)

    Might be a good excuse to stay running in linux.. use its myriad of firewalls ;-)

    We have full Jetstream service at work with about 7-8 PC's all using the net and email and the highest we have been is 7GB in a month and in that month I did download a few Linux ISO's.
    So you'd have be doing a lot of downloading to hit your 10GB.

    128K cable with Paradise/TelstraClear; 10 GB and I've never overrun it, and I download a fair number of large files, mostly video.

    Sad thing is, there is a narsty rumour (well it says it in Computerworld, so it must be true :-) ) that T-C is lowering the cap to 5GB on abolishing 128K for new users, and making them all go to 256K.

    T-C tells me existing 128K users won't be forced to upgrade (yet), but they haven't yet confirmed the reported 5 GB limit when/if I do.

    I did just over 6 GB last month and over 7 Dec/Jan 2001/2 over 7 (2002/3 wan't as bad for some reason), so I might break the new limit if I'm not careful (esp. with streaming video at twice the speed). But 10 is big enough not to worry me.

    Well I've had Jetstart conected for about a week and a half, and so far I have downloaded 6931.60 MB, at the moment I'm with maxnet who 'had' no data cap, however as of next month they are bringing in a 12GB cap, so I will probably change to neuron net who have no data cap



    Cheers

    With just regular surfing it would be really hard to get anywhere near 10GB.

    Once you start downloading it all kicks in though.
