it is bypassing in the sense that, ie you will have Downstorm download a file from some1 like Rapidshare/Megaupload/Hotfile, then giving you access to that file and be able to download at a higher rate than you would normally be allowed.
so take ie some1 goes and has Downstorm download several hundred gigs of files and now you want to download it... your line will be active for quite some time and because you are using DS, it will be running at closer to full speed than normally allowed.
this then causes you to take effect of a higher speed than what you would have normally downloaded, meaning you will be putting more 'strain' on their servers than usual.
but I think they have started to throttled Downstorm as well, but I could be mistaken.
kosmik on average how much do you download a month from mweb and how long have you had an account with them?
600GB is a heck of a lot but hardly think its abuse when used within the normal parameters. If you pay for a 4meg line, should you not expect that speed 24/7 all the time? Or should we be settling for a product that performs 60% of it's full capability?
dude, the guy has license to download anything as the product is uncapped. if you buy a pc, you going to overclock it to its limits. if mweb cannot stand by its product of being uncapped then they need to either state clearly a bw limit or not offer uncapped products.
they always say, if you cannot take the heat then you must get out of the kitchen.
just my 2c
Unless I got this all wrong, this fella in probability deserves hits fate. I haven't read FUP's cover to cover, but this description kinda fits the bill.
Adam joined MyBB today to start this thread and vent his discord at MWEB. Somehow it would have felt a bit better if he'd been in the forums a while longer. But this is his intro. Regretfully it doesn't set a good tone to start.
lol. I did 750Gb last month on my Axxess Express+ account.
You guys that are claiming the end of the world for anyone who uses more than 3Gb (or whatever your little caps are) need to catch a wake up. Go look in the rest of the world, 50Mb and now 100Mbps lines are available to users for a fraction of what we pay for our 4Mb lines.
In Canada they were imposing caps, but the people rejected it and the caps got removed. I really wish that the majority of South Africans weren't morons who still believe that downloading anything is bad karma.
You're the lame one here Bye Bye
