Is xtra uploading totally unmetered?


My (quite possibly incorrect) understanding, is that even uploading a file results in a small amount of downloading . Something to do with acnknowledgement packets or error checking. 


 If I am correct, what is the percentage of the download compared to the upload? 


Just thinking about uploading my entire photo collection to flickr. But, it is big, and I'm not sure about whether this will count towards some of my download cap.

I don't think it would count too much towards your download cap at all. Just don't open each photo in full afterwards :)

Are you using your free Xtra flickr pro account? Wish I'd know about it when i first signed up, I paid for my flickr a few months ago and now have two pro accounts




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

I really doubt it would be much acknowledgement packet data - so at a guess it would be less than <1kb per 1MB upload - but without benchmarking it myself (i'm not that picky about bandwidth) who knows..

I'm pretty sure Telecom have a special promo on at the moment where all uploads are free for a limited time.

It is, he was asking what sort of bandwidth ratio it is for upload data and the acknowledgements and overheads related to it (download wise).
