The press this side of the Pond is talking about a 250GB limit, and
we are all wondering what sort of luxury that represents!
Welcome to the Internet UK style - 15GB per month for about (GBP)£15
per month is what I get charged. Step over the limit and the charges
go up astronomically, which they can do because they insist on direct
billing to a credit or debit card.
I could really do something useful with 250GB per month, eg offer a
Tor server, run my own web and email server, instead of having to
rely on others to do it for me. That really would be luxury, but
actually it is a day-dream. Usage allowances will never get that high
in my lifetime!
