Virgin work on the amount of data regardless of the format.Basically here is my problem - my housemate keeps coming and telling me off because our bandwidth has been throttled - I didn't think it could be me as I have only downloaded one 3gb series and one 6gb game this month that both took about 2 weeks to download each. He downloads everyday and when I mentioned this he claimed that using alt.binz doesn't contribute to the download limit and says its all because of my torrents. I didn't see how this could be so but as he has the computing degree and I'm just a girl I apparently don't have a leg to stand on. Sorry to ask but I'm tired of him claiming I'm lying and as you all clearly know what you're talking about it would be nice to have a bit of evidence to back me up.
Cheers for posting that for me Magic Gringo
In fact if he's downloading via newsgroups, he's probably hitting the maximum speed you can get, which means he'll trigger the STM limit long before your torrents do.AHAHAHA I am so showing him that quote
On the 20Meg service, even when you are throttled, it's still faster than the vast majority of ADSL connections can manage.
