Beyond the limits of unlimited

Hate to moan on the blog, but...

I have BigPond cable broadband on an unlimited account.

That's right, unlimited.

On Sunday I got an email telling me that I had been slowed to 64kbps because I had reached my monthly usage allowance.

No, that's not a mistake.

I have exceeded the usage limits on my unlimited account.

This is pissing me off more than you can imagine.

Not only is my internet really slow, but whenever people send me files via email they take an eternity to download.

I'm ranting in this post becaus it just took me 20 minutes to get an email.

It's enough to make me want to sell my Telstra shares.

Problem is they're performing so badly they're worth a lot less than when I bought them.
