Hi all,
New user here to the forums and to xnet Smile

Sorry if this is a silly question but I'd like to know if uploading is counted as part of your data usage/contributes towards your data cap/costs etc?

Thanks in advance Wink

I would be very surprised if it doesn't, I am sure it does though.

hellonearthisman: every bit in or out counts.

I was under the impression that Gameplanet, VFX and a swag of other services did not in fact count towards your cap?

Anything local is free - vfx, dvx, mail, web sites hosted by Xnet, akamai hosted/cached sites, gp servers, recoil servers etc.

Anything national or international - in & out is counted towards your data cap.

Just to clarify national as some people think Xnet customer to Xnet customer is local.  Local is something which is pulled directly from our local network.  If you have to traverse the Telecom network to us and then traverse to it get to your destination it's national.  This of course meaning Xnet customer to Xnet customer is national not local - hopefully that makes sense :)
