The allowances are designed to be accurate based on your property size and if you are sensible with your energy consumption, it is unlikely that you will exceed these limits.

Internet

What is the Fair Usage Policy on Broadband? The Fair Usage Policy is designed to ensure that the service received by the vast majority of our customers is not negatively impacted because of extremely heavy usage by a very small minority of customers. This is why we continuously monitors network performance and may restrict the speed available to very heavy users during peak time. This applies to customers on any package. Note if you are a heavy user we will only restrict your speed. Service will not be stopped, so you will still be able to upload and download. We will not impose any restrictions outside of peak times. Only a very small minority of customers will ever be affected by this (less than 1%).

How do I know if I’m a very heavy user? There is no hard and fast usage limit that determines if you are a heavy user as the parameters that determine heavy use vary with the demands placed on the network at that given time. We tend to find that the very heavy users already know that they are using their broadband connections excessively.

Does the Fair Usage Policy apply to Broadband? Yes, the Fair Usage Policy applies to all customers on all packages. However our unlimited package allows unlimited downloads and uploads inclusive of the monthly rental price, so you will not be charged for over-use, however this does not preclude us from restricting your speed at peak times if you are a heavy user. If you are on the unlimited package and are a heavy user, this does not prevent you from continuing to use your service, nor does it cost you any more but it ensures that you do not negatively impact the majority of our customers who share the available bandwidth with you.
