OCN Flet's sent me an angry letter!

Unread post by nemo flow » Tue Mar 31, 2009 9:40 pm

Hi,

New to the forum, so Hi!

Just wanted to tell you about a letter I got today. I have been using OCN Flet's for 2 years now without any problems.

Recently I have been uploading a hell of a lot of stuff (working on a movie and sending huge files to people around Tokyo).

So, I got a letter from OCN stating that I had gone over the 30GB a day limit upload and that I have to call them before the 8th of April or they will cut me off.

I can't quite figure out WHY they want me to call; it seems like the typical Japanese bully/apology thing going on, but I will call them anyway. I can't see why they can't just send out the letter and then cut me off if I re-offend.

HIlariously, they also claim to have sent me an email about this before, to the OCN email account they give out when you set up an account. Who the hell uses that? Idiots.

On a personal note, 30GB is NOT a great deal of data nowadays, especially for dealing with HD film before it is compressed for medium.

So anyway, there it is. OCN are clamping down on uploads and it is a reality.

Crock of sh*t I say.

OCN started this last year and notified all of its customers. It's their way of trying to cut down on illegal file sharing. If you're uploading more than 30GB a day :shock: you'll probably want to think about looking for a new provider or talk to OCN and try and explain to them what you are doing using so much bandwidth.

Fucking hell, 30GB per DAY is a huge amount. I'm not surprised they're going to bollock you! You'll be lucky if they let you stay on a domestic contract - with that kind of usage they'll want you on a much more expensive business package for sure...
Shit wank bollocks

Mate, 30GB is NOT huge when you are dealing with high rez audio and video files. I am sending a load of uncut data on a daily basis to my mates around Japan,

I think this would easily be surpassed by the average 733T dl'er (I know that m demonoid account alone is on about 2TB up. Haha).

Haha, that is impressive. You must be a power user on empornium.us ;)

Hmm, I will call them tomorrow and check it out.

Cheers for the replys.

Fucking hell :jaw:

I went a few MB over my 5GB monthly limit of Super High Speed Broadband :poo: in Aus and I got charged an additional $220. By that notion then if the body snatchers had their way you'd owe an additional fifty hundred bazzilion dollars to the fuckers.

Well looks like I spoke too soon before (although it was 2 years ago). I finally got an angry email from OCN, saying that last Saturday I uploaded over 30gb. I'm not sure if a mail is in the post too or what, but I just set up my HTPC to cap out at 20gb upload a day.

I guess OCN West Japan got around to doing these checks.

I can probably sort this out myself but would appreciate any short cuts that some of oyu may know of...

I need to contact OCN about a complicated change to an account I own. (it's an account for a non-resident who owns a house in Japan). Funny how they let you buy a house without a residents card but they won't let you have the internet connected!!!

It's so complicated I don't want to deal with it over the phone if possible...(my Japanese is probably good enough but I'd prefer to walk into an office to sort it out...)

Does anybody know if there is a good way of dealing with problems at OCN?
An office somewhere?

NTT helped me set up the account...and were quite good. But now I have to deal directly with OCN.
I managed to get the NTT account transferred into a different name easy enough on the phone but OCN are more complicated.

Errr....I'm confused. OCN *is* NTT.... (Well, NTT Communications at least)

So it happened again! This time they sent me an email asking me to call them or they'd terminate my service. I did, and they had a talk with me asking if I knew why I had gone over the limit and if I could make a promise to not do it again, then telling me to remember my promise, and if it happens again blah blah blah.

I'm just wondering how it happened. I set a data limit cap on my htpc's torrent client, so either that didn't work or my room mate left his torrent client open ...

FF has also been doing some upgrades/new releases of late. Make sure FF is the latest version/up-to-date. That will prolly fix your problems.
