so, it's been about 47 minutes right now since midnight and my connection is still at 64k, can someone from ss tell me why it takes this long and what your computers actually have to do that takes 40 minutes, just curious.

Only just swapped back to a limited plan this month, but from memory when I was last on one of the limited plan, they'd seem to fully roll over somewhere between 1-2am

it took about an hour for it to change over, yes i did reset my modem about 3 times.
I'd understand if slingshot billed everyone on the same date but their computers can't be THAT busy
