Is it unlimited or subject to a fair usage policy?

I'm with Vivaciti (an Enta reseller) and I'm paying £30 a month inc  
VAT for 8mbit (this is an office connection so it has higher priority  
over home connections).  I get usage limits of 45GB peak time (8am to  
8pm Monday to Friday) and 300GB off peak (after 8pm to 8am and all  
weekend).  Although there are limits they seem to be fairly flexible,  
if I go over the limit I only have to pay the difference between the  
package I'm on and the next package up, plus £5 + VAT admin charge.   
I'd rather have that than have my connection blocked or limited.  It's  
also a 30 day contract.  I'd suggest anyone interested in trying Enta,  
goto www.ukfsn.org as they're an Enta reseller with the same prices  
and they fund Free Software.  I know its not the cheapest connection  
but I've been stung with *cheap* providers and long contracts before.
