Hi guys,

I am a medium internet user and would like to move my account to MWEB. Would like to get the Big Time Surfer Uncapped and I know there a fair usage policies in place. I just wanted to find out what the limit is on these accounts before u are named as "Abuser" and for your account to get throttled. The current company I am with is lame and am looking for a company I can get an Uncapped 4mpbs account. I do download but not heavy downloading. What would my best option be and which company is the best in terms of Upncapped adsl?:wtf:

mweb don't throttle, the fair usage policy is for abuser then they give you a warning after 3 they cancel your adsl.

Wow, thanks mate. I think this is what I'm looking for. I have heard MWeb is the best and was afraid of it being too congested with users. Guess I will look into MWEB. Thanks.

They ask you to buy a more expensive account. You can't go back to the same account as before :p

I believe the BAN is like a rap sheet, no way to remove that status off your account. I personally went through this back in June. Couldn't stick around but am happy with current ISP.

I'm on a 384k line. I do avg 80 - 100Gb/month . I Max out the line
Download all the time (mean 24/7). No Warning, or whatever. If we pay for uncapped for 10 to 20 times what the rest of the world his paying we should even use more than that.

Hi there... a buddy of mine downloaded 800GB of data... MWEB disconnected his service and status says "pending investigation" :) ... hes still without ADSL for more than a month now... will see how long it takes... i guess once you hit 500GB, you popup on MWEB's Radar
