afe66: I have children and internet via default Vodafone router.
Go into parental settings and create boundaries to device access.

Easy.

Lazy parenting.


wow, you got kids from Vodafone ?


 


Yes, everything has a password at our house and if you want access you either need to have done the dishes and been a good boy all day or wait till daddy starts drinking.


OTOH I have been amazed at the guile of my son who, for example, would shoulder surf to learn a phone's code, arrange for that phone to 'disappear' then sit up all night using the phone for entertainment.


 


I've gone through a list of counter moves to defeat his access to devices and the network unless access is explicitly granted.


Can the average punter disable YT and NF depending on the hour of the day?


I would suggest most people don't know what they need to limit for their kids and/or how to do it with the technology in their homes right now.


I think this would be an opportunity for ISPs.



Yes I originally wasn't that interested but when they bundled a baby girl with the unlimited data cap for 10p I was swayed...

Children know there are -consequences- for bypassing internet system and I will definitely follow through on them..

As my father told me, you don't live in a democracy...

While 20% goes somewhat unnoticed, I'm waiting for some of the smaller providers who simply don't have the legroom to quite spread out to handle random 20+% spikes without noticing a hit.

 




And last nights peak for the patch upgrade caused a peak about 10% larger than normal usage.

 

Yep bit of a peak, i didn't actually drill down to a percentage; even if i did, that's outside of content for me to post :)

 

 

 

Last nights was only what? a 3GB patch? so less impact overall..

I would have thought patches would be more evenly distributed....or say for PS4, would most kick into gear when people wanted to use it, and not sometime during the day?

I would have thought Windows updates would be worse.

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

The Battle Net launcher or whatever it's called now does a nifty thing where it can pre-download patches at a low speed... might help to reduce the impact on the network


I fix stuff!
