Because there isn't a strict FUP. We have our preferences as to how much you should use, but it's unlikely we're going to stop it unless it is adversely affecting other customers. Downloading 1-1.5TB of information in a month may be construed to adversely affect other customers and thus be considered abusing the network.


I really can't differentiate between the limit that you have specified and Airtel's FUP

For the fifteenth time, because we don't have an FUP that explicitly states "you may download X GiB in a month", nor does it apply to all users. The limits are basically imaginary and would only be applied on a case-by-case basis to those who are seriously hogging the network resources.

We do have our preferences, however, and we would only ask someone to tone-down the downloading when if it was necessary for fairness to other customers. Any numbers I throw out are merely guidelines as to when you as a single user would become "unprofitable" to us.

As I said, 1-1.5TB of international bandwidth usage in a month would probably be construed as abuse and dare I say, is very reasonable - policy or no policy.

Even NTT Japan has a 30GB per day limit, but that's way more than a typical user would use.

I think i wouldn't be happy with a limit like that.

Cheers

Wish you all the best.

What part of "there is no limit" do you not understand? We're far more reasonable than any other ISP in India, but if you still don't like it, please don't subscribe, noone is forcing you to. If you don't want to be at all limited, you will need to move to scandinavia- pretty much no ISP almost anywhere in the world would tolerate over a terabyte a month.

I think the bottom-line is clear: People who live their life on torrents won't be a satisfied/profitable customer for Hayai.You better focus on people who would respect what Hayai is offering to them that no other ISPs is giving right now: Value for money.

I don't see why it can't be the best of both worlds. The only thing I have an issue with is that this user expects to use a terabyte a month, or more, which I'm sure you'll agree is beyond fair use.

That being said, that's a Terabyte of international traffic. If you want to use that much on the Hayai zone (so DCPP or whatever), that's no problem.

Are expecting 1000 TB per month or something ?? :ishock::ishock:

Dude, your expectations cannot be satisfied anywhere in India or in the world. Even the most heavy torrent users I know of download around 200 GB worth of data at max per month. What sort of jobless person would download 1 terabyte worth of data in a month ?

Well! I'll be happy subscribing for one of the hayai data plans. :iplay:

What sort of a person will download over 200 GB per month ?? Addicts ?
Are there any % figures of the general content that people download like movies, soaps, p**n etc?
