Hi..wonder if anyone can help with this conundrum. I have broadband and phones supplied by UK Telecom...who also provide an IP address so I can use Iplayer...but there is a very limited download of 10 gigabites a month. To access the iplayer I need to connect to the VPN (dial up) connection, which allows downloading or streaming. I like watching tv late at night...so have recently exceeded my download limit...however...discovered that if I start the programme with the VPN in place...then disconnect as soon as the programme starts..it runs perfectly well without the connection....I need to know if this is still part of my allowance...or if I have discovered a ***** in the system that will be in my favour. Dont want to ask the company in case they find a way of changing it and charging me even more, I pay what I consider a huge amount already for their services..
