Can I download unlimited data over this connection?

In the larger interests of the internet user community a cap of 10 GB is considered. This would deter people who could use a residential connection for further reselling resulting in a substantive better overall experience.

Convenience

  • Flat monthly bill, no renewal coupon or additional usage charge.
  • No separate modem. Just a PC with LAN card (10/100 Base T) required.
