Updating Delayed

Category: PersonalChrisM @ 1:06 am

I discovered a while back that my mother-in-law’s broadband account isn’t “unlimited” (see a lot of previous posts for the reason quotation marks are used, basically you only get 10Gb per month before the 256kbit connection is throttled down to 64kbit! I’m not being unrealistic or setting my hopes to 90Gb would seem reasonable, no?), and she only gets 800mb per month on her sort of account before she has to pay more. As I am currently rebuilding a friend’s PC, a lot of updates need to be downloaded, but we missed the window of opportunity to alter the ADSL package in this house by one day, so I’ll need to take the PC back to ours and finish off the rebuild there instead.
