Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

Uddingston is run by the PG Tips Monkeys.... You have no idea the problems I have faced over the last 6 years, it is almost laughable.

But I am on a good deal for my package, very good deal. So can't grumble too much.

But keep getting t3s now and again, which is a bit annoying, and some RS errors on 2 channels more than the rest which may very well be the result of the t3s. Not in the millions like years ago... damn that was a bad bad time.

But the best ever CSR was this lady 2 years ago... who told me my 250GB download for the month was excessive... I almost fell of my seat. You would think they would be trained to know excessive limits.

It would've been well over 5 times the average usage so a fair chunk of bandwidth.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

250GB the last 4 years is nothing, considering the avg game size (AAA) was around 9GB anyway, and then you have Netflix etc for streaming stuff.

So yeah 250GB is easily done.

It's still 2.5 times the average usage and back then as I mentioned was upwards of 5 times the average, easily done or not.

Put it into the context of Joe Average user rather than Geek user and you can see why she made the comment she did.

I'm not sure I know anybody who'd buy 20 new AAA games a month, every month.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

Or buy games and replay them from Steam?

So you are only allowed to play your games once?

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

I think qas's point is that 20x games downloads per month seems unlikely, regardless if they're new games or games you currently own.

However, I agree that 250Gb per month is hardly a huge amount these days.

There is this thing called a 'hard drive' which means you don't download an entire game every time you run it.

It's really a very small range of media that uses the vast majority of bandwidth though. For pretty much all forms of internet use that do not involve moving images, even if you spend twelve hours a day online you could get by with less than 20GB a month.

Probably. However, what I'm saying is that it wouldn't be unusual to see a user hit 250Gb quite legitimately (as in without any naughty P2P or whatever) over the course of a month. There's always going to be a gulf between light and heavy users, I'm just saying that someone hitting 250Gig isn't something ISP's these days should get concerned about.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

That's true, I wasn't trying to imply high usage wasn't "legitimate". Simply pointing out that ten minutes of video can use up more bandwidth than twelve hours heavy use of web browsing, gaming, email, or even audio streaming.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

Ohh well I've misunderstood a bit I think. But yes, Data usage will increase, shocking revelation for some ISP's, it seems.

So people have to buy an HDD (with an external caddy) when they buy games from Steam, and fill it up, and when it is full, buy another one and fill that up?

And when you force Steam to find the HDD to find the games installed, it will then update AAA titles no doubt, and whatever else it picked up off the HDD.

You know that scenario is silly.

What about people who buy Blu-ray quality movies from Playstation store etc and have download a massive 20GB+ per movie?

250GB is gone easily in less than a day, at speeds just now just over 1 minute = 1GB at top speeds from VM.

Would anybody be doing it all the time no.. of course not.. but the point is, I don't like the way advisers are instantly doing the you are a heavy user when you call to see what is up with the network, like it is your fault and you are bad.... they should focus on the multiple TB users who sit on torrents seeding and peering all day long.

No, they have a drive in their computer already, otherwise it wouldn't be able to start up.

No, what's silly is your suggestion people download a game, play it once, delete it, then download it again the next day.
