This is an artificially created 'limited' scope.True but that wasn't the purpose of the poll, it needed to remain in context and reflect the limited “best of a bad bunch” style choices that ISPs were being given because there really isn’t a “no” option for them. The idea was to see what people would choose if given the same limited scope. Obviously if ISPs could take the “no” rout then they, like many consumers, probably would, but it’s not a choice they’re being given. I reflected that in the summary.
I probably should of added a second Yes/No poll below asking "Do you think something really needs to be done?" but unfortunately thought of that too late. I'll build that separate question into another survey this year instead, probably following the final Digital Britain report.
I think if people actually read some of the bills that are passed they'd be outraged.It certainly feels like an autocracy at times and no matter how much opposition there is the government still seems inclined to force through a tougher outcome.
OK Mark, fair enough. But that limitation should really have been reflected in the question being asked, not least because the press occasionally do quote from such surveys - the Phorm one was widely quoted. Do you really want to be responsible for headlines in the Mail that read "20.7% of Brits think ISPs should tackle repeated illegal file sharing by imposing restrictions upon P2P access", because shorn of context, that's how it would read.True but that wasn't the purpose of the poll, it needed to remain in context and reflect the limited “best of a bad bunch” style choices that ISPs were being given because there really isn’t a “no” option for them. .
This really applies to 'unlimited' packages, and any company which provides this type of package without the structure to take it deserves what it gets, either be honest with customer or face the consequences (aka. heavy use).As a customer of an ISP that is restricted in speed every weekend due to the p2p traffic and ilegal file sharers I think ISPs should limit them to slower speeds without limiting those who stay well within the limits of the package selected.
Why should someone who is paying for 45GB a month but never goes over 25GB a month be restricted down to less than 2meg when those who do all this file sharing tend to be those who are able to get max speed and still end up faster connection than me.
-DVD is ~700MB (re-encoded, no quality loss).Most apps don't go into the GB region so I assume you're downloading video, but even a DVD will typically come in at around 4GB (which I suppose could leave Blu-Ray content ?).
Overall I work uni/retail 4 days a week and I am 18.I'm just curious, where do you find the time to use all the material you download ? :shrug:
