FIOS unlimited my butt, man capped at 77TB a month - May 26, 2013, 05:47 PM

Apparently there is a limit to unlimited data on FIOS lol. A man found out exactly how much data you can sneak
by Verizon before you get a call from them. He was averaging around 50TB a month and peaked at 77TB.
Obviously he isn't running a few desktops but rather a full rack consisting of the following.

source FiOS customer discovers the limits of “unlimited” data: 77TB a month | Ars Technica

A 1u server acting as router and VPN server with 4 1.5TB disks.
A 1u testing server with two 1.5TB disks.
A 2u server—formerly a "colo box"—with eight 750GB disks
A 4u Solaris/ZFS backup machine with 24 1TB disks
Another 4u server—houkouonchi's main server with 24 2TB disks and two 3u storage expansion units, each with 15 3TB disks.
A 2u "Windows/miscellaneous" server with eight 1TB disks
Two 2u uninterruptible power supplies
Another 4u Solaris/ZFS server for backups with 24 1TB disks



Apparently that's just what he has on the premesis. Verizon mainly fussed because he had switched to a slightly cheaper
residential plan versus the business plan. Running hosting on a residential plan violates the TOS so he was forced to move back to his original business plan.

So don't worry guys, you won't run out your Fios unlimited data cap anytime...even with round the clock youtub'n.

As soon as I saw the amounts, I knew they were going to TOSs him for moving Commercial levels of data on a Residential plan.

Crazy experiment though if that of course was his intent.

I remember when my old company bought 320 TB's of data storage servers from IBM.
Each sever rack was half the size of a refrigerator and we had aisle of them in the NOC.
It took up half the room, required a constantly conditioned environment to manage heat and humidity, and cost a few million for the storage alone.

Fast forward ~10 years ... I have a 1TB external. It's roughly the size of a bible. It cost me $120.

If you get the 50/25 plan and it test below 13 can you argue with Verizon?
of will the fine print of up to 50/25 come into play?

There's a lot of factors that come into play with testing bandwidth. You can argue it, but all they have to do is test from their network to a device in your home. If they're providing 50/25 up to their demarcation point then they've met their agreement.

This is your answer.
Read the SLA carefully and you'll see they only guarantee a minimum speed up to their node outside the house.

The language is tricky and deceptive in the ads. In short, they guarantee you access to a minimum package speed - not that you will actually achieve it.

Yeap, BUT... it can't hurt to bring it up to them, because if for some reason there is something going on with your circuit they'll definitely work to resolve that. But if the Circuit is testing fine and they get close to advertised speed to their servers they will leave it at that. Too many factors once you leave their premises for them to guarantee beyond VZ networks.

I've had this call with them. They will give you 3 sources to test speeds- must be done via ethernet cable to the router....

I was getting an average of 58/28 on my 50/25 plan.

same connection on wireless was 18/13 (and the source of my complaint).

apparently a lot of speed gets lost in the airwaves, lol

This is at my GF house....and I just remembered that she had me set her desktop up with Wifi vs. a hard line connection.

there are a few items on the line via wifi also...decktop, laptop, iPhone and some other items I think like Xbox.

The Wifi on the routers that Verizon provides is pretty crappy. Our 75/35 connection wifi throughput is at best around 35/30. You may have to switch channels on your router, 1, 6 and 11 are the best best in the US. Also try switching over to N performance mode if the router has it available.

You can get way better throughput on wifi if you bridge a separate router to the verizon on and use it instead.
