online.net - Guaranteed bandwidth server
I got an email around 3 hours ago from online.net stating the below, what do you guys think? I'm pretty sure I signed up for unmetered bandwidth on 1gig port with 100mbps guaranteed bandwidth, nothing stated I can not exceed 100mbps of bandwidth as it states unmetered traffic.
The server is a Dedibox kidéchire. I have another two of them which I aint even using, just sitting idle, so technically I have 300mbps of guaranteed bandwidth. I guess if they get funny about it I can split it across the 3 servers and most likely end up using even more bandwidth.
I contact you to alert you of the way that your using your bandwidth.
If you look your Graph, you will see that your bandwidth are always on the top of it.
Your bandwidth guarantee is 100 mbps you have exceed it 1563 times about server *****.
And we can't allow you to stay at this level, so we have two solutions for you :
1/ You stop to use your bandwidth at this level and come back to the normal with different tools example Wondershaper on Debian
2/ You take the service Higher bandwidth.
Server > Server List > Manage > Service Level & Options > Higher bandwidth
The higher bandwidth option allows you to use more than your server's guaranteed bandwidth and thus benefit from the maximum amount of technically achievable bandwidth.
This functionality is subject to technical constraints of our infrastructure.
This service is made for servers with high bandwidth usage.
Higher bandwidth - 79.99 € pre-tax /month
If you don't choose any of this possibilities, we will have to slow down your server in the next 24 hours.
At your service,
I have not replied to it yet, just wanted to get some feedback to see if they can do this before i reply. Thanks.
