What's included in my 10G limit?..

Good afternoon all!  I've just got off the phone with India (always a happy experience), having asked them what I thought was a simple question & am not really any the wiser.

 

I asked "Does listening to BBC Radio through my PC contribute to my 10G download limit?"

 

He answered (essentially), "No, it doesn't."

 

I then asked a friend of a friend that used to work for BT, who said "Yes, it does."

 

Calling BT back, I got a different operator who said "Yes, it does."

 

Please, can any of the insanely clever people here give me a definitive answer?

 

I post this with apologies for being stupid & genuine thanks for your time & attention.

Surely it does. It's streaming the audio signal to your PC through the internet from a remote server.

Any data packets ... ANY .... that are either downloaded or uploaded, regardless of protocol, add to your limit.  😉

Hi Nigel.

 

The only things that are not included are BTVision data, BBTalk calls and BTFon. Everything else counts.

Sorry about that - I keep forgetting about that particular service.

Everything you download or upload counts, except for a few BT-provided services.
The only services I can think of that are not counted are BT Vision, BT Digital Vault and BT Broadband Talk.
