Wow and I thought I was bad using about 70gigs all in all a month on a 1 meg line I think mweb are fair with their aup, I don't bypass their shaping protocols, and my torrents and similar burdens still fly! For the price I'm paying for my account i reckon it's good value for money. Really don't agree with that rolling window B.S from other ISP's my only critisism is that their new 2mb package is a bit pricey
Shnorkiller: To everyone else who has decided to climb on their moral high ground, I hope whatever you just torrented is full of Trojans.
Dude you're doing this uncapped thing all wrong. Usage warnings are for rookies.
- Don't throttle yourself
- Don't use VPN's or https
- Don't download much during working hours
- Don't have consecutive months of conspicuous usage (450GB+)
That's all there is to it. Last month I used over 500GB. I've scaled back this month to a healthy 385GB thus far. Last 12 months is nearly 4TB. Not one issue. No one can say Mweb isn't the best shaped uncapped provider.
uncapped noobs :P ive had uncapped for a very long time now, and i think i average 340 gigs a month now, which i think is about right/ fair. If you are doing that much day in, day out there is something wrong. Are you really going to watch all those series/movies etc ?
The thing about your usage is its like the max, each day. When i look at my graphs, i have some days close on 30gigs, but then the next 2 are 5 gigs for example. Im not trying to download the internet, just might have high spikes when i want a few seasons of something
:: i7 920 :: CoolerMaster CM690 :: 12GB Corsair :: 7.5TB ::
:: Sammy 37" :: ATI6870 :: Win7 :: 4 meg uncapped
Oits! And I thought me closing in on 35GB for this month is a lot. Well, I consider it a bargain, my Telkom cap was at 20GB.
Also had my share of fun with MWeb and abuse. Not worth the hassle, get another provider.
MY BLOED IS BLOU!
Kick SANRAL in the gantries! DO NOT REGISTER OR BUY E-TAGS!
900 gigs a month??? Wtf are you downloading? How much porn is enough?
I got to disagree, I don't bypass the rules and do about 100 - 500 gigs a month depending on releases and I have Nev er had so much as a peep from Mweb.
You paying what? R400 and you wanna backup the internet?
You one of the reasons the telkom network is under such unnecessary strain which is causing the severe congestion issues. And trust me i know all about it... Just use the search function.
Get a life.
Constantly queuing up masses of downloads and squeezing as much data as you can out the line day in and day out however is not reasonable behavior and will be flagged as such if it happens over an extended period of time.
Remember that we do have other products specifically designed for people who have been playing too much DayZ and are now trying to back up the entire Internet before the Zombie Apocalypse starts.
A friend of mine had a similar issue to the OP. His entire family were hammering the account though so he eventually switched to Openweb. OP it really boils down to this:
Be reasonable with your internet usage and MWEB won't hit you with the banhammer.
Seriously man, I barely pirate anything these days (yay for Steam specials and F2P) but I stream a lot of podcasts and Youtube and the most my usage has ever been is about 200 gigs (and that's even when I have tell my bro to stop seeding whatever he has finished downloading). R2.70 per gig is a pretty sweet deal to me.
I don't know what the hell you are downloading man but it would probably take you several lifetimes to get through all of it.
