Zen -- is "unlimited" truly unlimited?
« on: February 17, 2021, 07:31:49 PM »

I have some annoying remote-work issues that would most easily be solved by downloading about 2TB of data from work to my home computer. I would download about 100GB a day for 20 days in a row, in addition to our normal monthly usage of 0.5 to 1 TB. We have Zen's Unlimited Fibre 2, but I am uncertain about the "unlimited" part. Is downloading 3TB in a month going to cause any problems, such as rate limiting, "fair usage" policy, caps, etc.? When the family's entire life is online, I can't afford to upset the ISP!

I think you have no problem. All “unlimited “ is however normally  subject to fair use terms, in your contract.

I actually went looking in their acceptable use policy and can't find anything about fair usage.  It kinda makes sense as Zen aim for a zero contention network and if this is the usage I pull on 60Mbit VDSL, imagine what I could do on 900Mbit FTTP and its not proportionately more expensive to how much more bandwidth I could use (rightly so, as the ISP wont be paying for bandwidth use, just pipe size).

I've never seen anything about a FUP. I don't often exceed 1 TB download anyway. :)

You'll be fine, as others have said.
