benbuckley05 Posted March 15, 2011 Share Posted March 15, 2011 (edited) Hi, I paid for 10GB bandwidth plan for a month today. i am happy with the speed and everything else and was planning to subscribe every month. I truly thought that it related to speed not data as 10GB of data is not mentioned anywhere. Maybe i should have known better and it hardly going to break the bank. But two things had really put me off. 1. i had already downloaded 50% of a 7GB file but it charged me for the whole 7GB. i thought ok no problem when this is done i will download the next file (3.5 GB). 2. After the download finished i then came to understand that i am only allowed to download 10GB per month. So the 10GB bandwidth is misleading as what you are actually selling is 10GB worth of transfer data not 10GB bandwidth. So i had a total of 7GB to download(2x 3.5 GB) and was not even able to download the second part. So basically i paid a month subscription for 2 hours of downloading half of what i wanted? how can I be happy with that? Here is the web definition of bandwidth. 'a data transmission rate; the maximum amount of information (bits/second) that can be transmitted along a channel' Anyway I am sure there are probably other definitions that support bandwidth as only data trandfer not speed but you strangely had not put that in the advertising (i.e. for $5 you can download 10GB worth of data).
