What do you do with 50GB between 2am and 8am?

My ISP has just increased the monthly download quota. Going from a reasonable 30 GB peak and 30 GB off-peak, to more impressive 50 GB for both.

And it only increased to 30GB for both from 15GB/20GB peak/off-peak last December.

There is the question though of ‘What do you do with 50GB between 2am and 8am?‘. Off-peak being restricted to a 6 hour block in the wee hours of the morning.

So, to help answer this difficult question I put together a short list of things you could do:

  • Scheduled backup to remote location
  • Scheduled backup from remote location

Not that they are the only ISP to offer a large off-peak quota that nobody will ever use. Really, its all just a marketing ploy to make it look like everyone gets twice as much quota.

And I’m sure the ISP would not want anyone to be using the quota for file sharing.
