Ok.WA phoned me just now. Looks like the "bug" was that I was over 11 Gig by far (could be).. and it wasn't showing the full bandwith used. So now it's calculating from the actual amount used instead of the 11Gig. (Which makes sense)
Can I trouble anyone on an 384 Kb line to just do a couple of speed tests? Just curious of what speeds I should expect when I'n not throttled.
how would you guys rate a 4mg uncapped adsl line for xbox live. Want a 4mg uncapped line due to i download a lot but also wanna game on it
We've asked this question a million times, but the WA reps always simply ignore it.Surely your preventative measures would kick in long before a user could "abuse" your service?
Look at the rolling window as more of a punishment system than a system to prevent the network exceeding its capacity.
No, you only said the rolling windows are being looked into. You never said why abuse emails are being sent out when there are security measures put in place to prevent the network from being abused.
Since I am home twiddling my thumbs, here is a quick speedtest:
Product: Home Uncapped
I'm going to run some speedtests over the next few days at various times of the day to see what performance is like.

Sometimes I laugh so hard, the tears run down my leg
Thought you guys might be interested to know, we've recently upgraded our network by roughly 8%
More upgrades to come too!
I've been fairly happy with WA's uncapped service because usually when all my mates are complaining about Mweb giving them **** I'll be sitting there smiling because I am unaffected. Latency in games has been amazing but that said I have been experiencing a rather strange but very inconvenient problem and I was wondering if it's been happening to anyone else?
Basically if someone in my house, for reference sake we'll call this person my sister, downloads something using Bittorrent even if only at a few kilobits per second it completely kills my connection! I can not browse the internet, I can not do anything except maybe run a ping from the command line. In some cases it is so bad that the network icon in the Windows system tray shows a yellow exclamation mark indicating there is no internet connectivity! I have a 4Mbit line yet downloading something at an average of 10Kbps completely maxes it out to the point where no one else can use it!
This isn't isolated to someone else downloading and me trying to browse, even if I just open a bittorent application the throttling or shaping or whatever the hell it is starts. I mean nothing can be downloading but by mere virtue of the application starting to communicate with DHT / bittorent servers I lose the ability to browse the net. This happens irrespective of my usage limit, which I don't even think I've ever hit, as it is almost the end of the month and this is what my usage generally looks like...
Seriously WTF WA?
Can't speak to the throttling that is happening but I changed my habits and usage from downloading what I want when I want (for big downloads that is) to downloading them during Download+ hours.
Staying in the green is your friend which is somewhere around 10GB - queuing your downloads to happen during Download+ hours is your even better friend.
