    seyer.meoj

      someone from 211 said i've consumed the alloted 10gb daily cap from 6AM to 8AM. 10gb for 2hours with 5mbps. please do the math if its possiblesomeone from 211 said i've consumed the alloted 10gb daily cap from 6AM to 8AM. 10gb for 2hours with 5mbps. please do the math if its possible.

       

      She said it will reset every 6AM the following day.

      So, I could way that at 6AM, I should start counting my daily usage.

      At 7AM, it still reaches above 500KBps.

      AT 8AM, it goes down to 1.5mbps or below 200kBps.

       

      after calling 211, i was told that I 've consumed my 10GB of data cap.

       

      First point, I do monitor my bandwidth usage using BitMeter OS.

       

      Second, lets assume I am reaching the maximum speed of 5mbps,

      I will consume 10Gb after  4 hours and 30 mins (given that the speed reached and stable at 5mbps)

       

      Third, on tattoo plans. After consuming the data cap, speed will decrease to 25% of the plan speed.

      From 5mbps to 1.25 mbps. I am having 1.5mbps download speed on speedtest.net with the nearest server of globe.

      I don't think globe is generous enough to give an extra .25 mbps on  someone they call bandwidth hag.

       

      This happen Maundy Thursday, April 17, 2014 same as the time of writing.

      Start of my 5 day rest/vacation.

       

      I will not consume the cap since i am at home the whole day, and i know i wil be using it and will get irritated for a slow internet.
