At first I was wondering if this should be posted in The Rant Thread!
, but realized that I also have a question which I will like to be answered.
I am usually very satisfied with my Internet Supplier; the company is handling my land-line Telephone, my Televison, my Internet, my music file collection, and (for a while) my online backup.
But yesterday they mailed and informed me that they have both doubled my speed AND introduced "Fair Use
": I am no longer allowed to download more than 1,000 (a thousand) GB (=1TB) per month! They didn't bother to include anything about "what must I do if I need to download more?", or any words about "how can I download my backup which is more than 1TB?"!
I feel certain I never have downloaded 1TB in a month, and may never download this much (please, God, don't let me need to download my backup!), but one of the problems in my mind is, that I don't know how much I already am downloading, and they have not yet offered any way for me to know this data.
I am not panicking, it will probably take me a year to download 1TB (please, God, don't let me need to download my backup!), but I would certainly like to know the answer to the basic question:
Does Windows or Firefox in any way keep record on How Many Bytes Was Downloaded?
-or is the Internet Supplier the only one who knows how much I am downloading?
