Hi all,

At the last CLUG meeting I shared with a couple of people my discovery that
Internode does actually count downloads from other Internoders as part of your
monthly downloads.  Everyone I spoke to reckoned this was false, so I queried
them.  I thought I'd share the response, because if nothing else a few people
might want to think about their downloading habits :-)

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your support request.

Contrary to the beliefs of those you have been talking to, data shared between
Internode customers (or anyone on the PIPE network) still counts towards your
monthly limit.

The reason that it is still charged, even if within a city, is that any form
of internet-based data transfer, no matter the scale or distance still creates
a cost to us and to have it completely unmetered would be uneconomical.

Kind regards,

Customer Support Officer
