With those internet speeds, would you blame him?
Telstra, an Australian telco that many people are aware of by now, knows how to make it up to customers. Following a network outage a few days ago, the Australian telco decided to give its customers free reign on its network last Valentines day as way of remuneration. That means last Sunday, it allowed its customers to consume as much data as they wanted, no strings attached, and boy did people take them up on the offer.
According to the telco, all of their customers consumed a record 1,841 terabytes of data in 24 hours, which is double the traffic that they usually see during the same period. Reddit user DrRodneyMckay says that he managed to consume a whopping 421GB worth of data from his tethered LG G4 smartphone. We are frankly surprised that the phone didn’t melt into a gooey pile of plastic after that much data passed through its body in a span of 24 hours to be completely honest.
So what did he download? Well, according to him he downloaded all 25 seasons of How It’s Made along with a few other random TV shows and synced his entire library of games on steam that consisted of 172 games. Looking at his speed test results, we’re not surprised why he abused the system – who wouldn’t want to download a game or 172 games with those speeds?
