Has anyone with ihug been throttled back to 64 K recently and have good evidence that they had not actually reach their monthly allowance? I suspect that ihug's counting of data is not working correctly. Fred
I noticed that this month as well. I was away for the first week & the router was off so I shouldn't have incurred any traffic. Having been back a week I then checked my traffic allowance to find I was over 60% through it. And for some mysterious reason this month, the daily summary of traffic allowance is absent. I emailed iHug who told me it's a 'technical issue' & they have engineers working on it. A week later the summary is still down (the button has disappeared) so I repeated the email & was told the same thing. Two weeks into the month I'm back on dial-up but there's _no way_ I've used all my traffic. Probably just co-incidence that the month all my data allowance disappears overnight is the same month I can't check their webpage to see where it's gone. It's interesting someone else has noticed that too though.
Does anyone know of any software that will sit between your browser/torrent client/newsgroup reader & the router & keep a track of all the data going both ways without incurring a huge performance hit? I'd like to know what I'm actually using & compare it with what they say I am?
Much as I applaud their 'upfrontness' I am still aggrieved I was back on dial-up way before my traffic limit was reached (by my estimation). Unfortunately of course I now have no way of proving it until the 7th February.... Perhaps, until they fix the problem, they should remove all throttling.... yeah right
