Shaping is the method we use to manage your download quota. Shaping only applies to our ADSL and ADSL2+ services.
When you have reached your monthly quota on either your Prepaid OR Peering allowances you will be shaped to a lower speed.
- Existing Customers (Pre 30th Nov 2007) – shaping will be removed and your quota will be reset on the 1st of each calendar month.
- New Customers (Post 1st Dec 2007) – shaping will be removed and your quota will be reset on the monthly anniversary of your joining date.
Unfortunately not at this time. Providing shaped plans provides you with the reassueance of a fixed monthly fee and allows us to have less accounts staff.
The following destinations are excluded from traffic quotas:
Yes, traffic routed over our network between our customers is metered and subject to shaping.
No, unfortunately not. Your quota is reset.
We will be introducing a traffic protal soon. To find our your current usage, please call customer service or log a support ticket.
