I'm Just Wondering if getting DDosed could affect your monthly limit?

ubergeeknz: Yes

Is there anything I could do about it to be able to get this Bandwidth Back?

Being on the end of a DDoS attack from a home connection is unusual. Were you hosting some service from home?

Just curious...

Yes but in the case of DDoS I'd hope Vodafone network operations would detect it and close it down.

That is exceedingly difficult to do. And the scale of DDOS required to flood a typical home connection is insignificant in the scheme of things.

The way they can close down a DDoS from hitting you is usually to null rotue your IP... which makes your connection unusable...

It sounds off you would be DDoSed - I presume you play online games?

We'll wipe the bandwidth  if it's DDoS. We can usually see if when we do a queue check (which takes a few hours to come back). Flick me your details and I can sort that for you. :)

If DDOS is a common occurrence, Might need to change your IP if its static on Cable. Usually all data that transmits through a router of an ISP in your direction is your responsibility what ever the volume.

Put your router up on blocks and run your internet backwards for a while (Ref. ferris bueller's day off)
