Bah! I uncapped my internet with the excellent $5 deal that Snap offers... However, I scheduled uTorrent to start at 1 and finish at 7, and yet around 1.5GB of the data I used still appeared on my cap. This is a bit of a problem as it is very near the end of my billing month and I have almost no data left. Why is there a delay with putting on the cap? I don't really want to stay awake until 1.10am in the morning to start my downloads and then wake up at 6.50 to stop them. Something tells me this is a good way to get users to use up their data caps in offpeak periods to ensure there is less bandwidth being used during peak congestion? I don't really want to complain to them due to the earthquake and how busy they must be and all, but can someone enlighten me as to whether there is a legitimate reason for the delay in uncapping? >:[
Just Ring them , its what they are there for, to support and offer help to the people that keep them in business , if they have made a mistake then they will fix it , one thing you never see about Snap is people complaining about there customer service.
When you go in to activate the unlimited overnight offer it clearly states:
"Please allow 15 minutes for the rate limit to be removed at 1am and reapplied at 7am."
I've had data going through at 7:15am that wasn't charged to my monthly allocation so I guess there's swings and roundabouts. If you allow the time for the switchover you won't get any nasty surprises.
Can't you use Windows task scheduler to open uTorrent at 1.10am - does that automatically start the downloads when you open the program? I use Usenet to download a few things each month using the $5 unlimited and load up Grabbit with the NZB's I want to download while I am awake and then close it.
Use the task scheduler to start grabbit at 1.10am and it downloads up to 22GB in 6 hours.
