If you go over your allowance, what happens depends on how you've set up your account on the Broadband Your Way Control Panel
- If you've chosen to fix your cost: Your broadband speed will be restricted to 256kb/s at all times, until the end of the billing month. Access to binary Usenet, peer-to-peer and external FTP will be blocked. You can increase your fixed cost (adding more usage) to lift these restrictions, or you can wait until the end of your billing month
- If you've chosen to 'Pay as you go': Your allowance for the month will be increased in blocks as per the table below. You'll be charged for any usage and your allowance will reset at the end of your billing month

How is traffic prioritisation applied?
We assign all traffic on the network a priority, with the more time-sensitive applications given a higher priority. As the total bandwidth available is shared, this means time-sensitive applications will continue to perform even when the network is busy.
|Internet Activity||Priority||Pro Priorities|
|Browsing and email||Medium||Medium|
|VoIP (internet phone calls)||High||High|
|Peer to Peer||Low||Medium|
