My i ask what company that is with. I thought the max consumer speed currently in Australia was 1.5mb/s.mad jew said:Well I always go through my 16 gigs but that's more out of choice than necessity. I suppose, if I wanted to I could get by on about 3 gigs or so.
Couldn't agree with you more about the quality of Aussie broadband though. I can't wait 'til Internode gives me my ADSL2+. Two months time and I should be on 12Mb/s. Might have to upgrade the gigs/month then too.

I'm not being charged for going over. Well, not that I know of. And dl speeds remain at 1.5 Mbits.mad jew said:Have you thought of seeing someone about that habit?
I get charged way too much if I go over. Unlike the rest of Australia, I get financially capped rather than just getting our speed throttled.

I used MenuMeters for a few weeks until I realised that my ISP (tiscali) sent out emails at 75% usage and 90%. This was enough to keep me informed...Applespider said:Does anyone know of a application (or widget perhaps) that can track your usage? My provider is putting caps on but at the moment, I have no idea whether I'm likely to exceed them or not; and I'd like to know before I get roped into a new contract with them.
that program's really handy. how do you get it to display the totals like how much in a month? it says ive done 200mb up and 1.7gb down, but ive done about that (only backwards) this morning and it's only 3:00 hereBlue Velvet said:I used MenuMeters for a few weeks until I realised that my ISP (tiscali) sent out emails at 75% usage and 90%.

The problem with these utilities is remembering to reset them each month. And of course, since you're Tigger-catching this week, it may not work at all. Possible claws for concern...
iinet dsl currently allow speed to go to the limit for your line, a possible 8Mbit/s / 1Mbit/s. i'm getting 6481 down 768 up. internode and adam are now running adsl2. iinet is still trialing adsl2. users are reporting speeds over 18Mbit/s.DeSnousa said:My i ask what company that is with.

Holy crap dude, that's some serious downloading!Lacero said:I finally got an email message from my internet provider telling me I'm over my limit. I was downloading a lot of TV shows, such as Dr. Who, and the final season of Enterprise so I wasn't surprised I got the email.
My connection is still active but I'll be limiting my usage to a more reasonable level, I guess.
April Usage for this year.
Anyone go over their limits?
