jnimmo: Games would usually come down through Akamai or similar CDN anyway wouldn't they, thus usually be zero-rated? I haven't been over 85GB in the last year and we are always streaming Netflix etc. Not on the torrents though :)


don't think Snap zero-rates akamai.


Perhaps not by policy or guaranteed, but I certainly download lots from Microsoft VLSC (DVD ISOs etc) which comes through Akamai and don't get charged for it


its a bit give a take.


snap seem to not charge if its inside of their network. no telling if your pulling from a akamai server outside of their network though.


i personally dont manage my downloads to be in offpeak very often, i pay for enough data regardless of the situation (and actually my usage has gone down ALOT over the last few months..)

Some have reported Snap -> Snap customers is unmetered, But im sure ive used some when someone pulled data from my web server.

I stopped monitoring internal web usage on the network/per PC since we never approached our 200gb+ limit.

eXDee: Some have reported Snap -> Snap customers is unmetered, But im sure ive used some when someone pulled data from my web server.

maybe its only within the same BRAS?

would be interesting to know none the less.



i have had some data unmetered to a few ftp servers in china that i was dumping, no way was it cached or anything, certainly found it a nice surprise...


long as you only expect nighttimes to be unmetered, since thats clearly stated, anything else is a bonus!

I don't netflix, and very little streaming of Sky - traffic is split probably 50/50 with a total of 5TB being backed up to Oz in process. I'll fill a couple 64Gb CF cards full of photos and video easily in a day which I then backup off shore, so unlimited is a perfect fit for me.

Size of my server - not quite a server but my desktop tops out at 12Tb currently.
