    BT Unlimited - you would assume you get "unlimited", no?
    Unfortunately not. You actually get 100gb per month. Not unlimited.
    I had to get photoshop CS4 on my mac, and that took 3 tries (30gb already gone)
    Then I had to download all my music off my remote server (20gb)
    Then I had to install a huge TON of apps (15gb)
    65gb down the drain.
    Then I started watching some movies online. I watched about 10 movies (admittedly ones I already bought but lost) and that was roughly 90gb now.
    BT sent me an email saying I was being restricted for 30 f*cking days.
    Why? Because I'm using the service they advertised.
    God I f*cking hate BT. I'm switching after my contract runs out.
    What are your fav ones? I want one that actually fulfills the UNLIMITED part of the agreement.

    100GB, I am on BT and download in excess of 300GB a month, never been restricted once.

    Unlimited for me :D

    It doesn't actually cap it, it just slows it down immensely to the point of where I can't upload a F*CKING YOUTUBE VIDEO :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: F*CKING POS

    Sorry lol. Actually I'm not. BT will be when I've chainsawed them :D lol, but srsly I will probably ring them and ask them what this is about...its false advertising.

    It's BT, that doesn't surprise me. They said they were going to fix our line in a couple of days, that was a few weeks ago now. :rolleyes:

    Instead of the 20mb speed I signed up for, Im now getting about 1/2mb.
    All because I'm doing what I payed for. Using unlimited space. Piece of sh*t.
