WISE introduced the unlimited night usage between 12 a.m. and 7 a.m. few years back, but it was crap until DSL was launched and many switched from WISE to DSL. I remember calling the WISE guys after midnight 3-4 times a week as I would have no connection at all. (I would need it to work sometimes, not just download stuff).
Anyway, I didn’t expect a better outcome from DSL and I wasn’t wrong to think so. In fact, I tried downloading a movie on a DSL connection yesterday night and woke up to find it stuck at 5%. I downloaded it again during the day and it took approximately 4 hours for a 600Mbytes movie.
Hahaha so truuuuuue. In fact when i was in Lebanon and using a wise i understood the system. I was usually downloading everything during the two first night of my billing cycle. I knew that after this period, it will me impossible.
It will be impossible to download*
I always had Unlimited night traffic on my IDM DSL connection from 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM.
I download all my series at night. and some movies. Usually the series are done in few hours. Movies may take two nights. So I never had this problem.
I hope it stays like this after everyone gets free night traffic :/
Hey Najib, I had the same prob with mobi, from 10pm till 3 am the internet was useless.. gmail wouldnt load.. google too..
now i switched to sodetel 4Mb, it’s awesome, the speed is constant at 300~350KBps, series download in 30 mins max, movies in a couple of hours.. and best of all, whether it’s 11pm, 12am, or 3pm it’s the same speed.. i must warn you however that i don’t think it would be good for gaming cz the ping is high.. otherwise i would recommend it… it’s free from 12 till 8 too
Do you know when this will be available for idm?
I have no idea to be honest. I tried calling WISE to ask today but they did not answer. I will try IDM tomorrow maybe.
It already exists for IDM. I have had it since I signed up for my DSL.
Movies take a couple of hours maximum – occasionally I cue up 6 or 7 movies and they are always all finished before 7am. Service a bit slow at exactly 11pm for half an hour or so but picks up quickly.
My limit is 25GB but when I check my unlimited usage it is always around 70-80GB – it’s brilliant and works extremely well ( I live in Gemmayzeh if that makes a difference).
Yes I know that it exists for IDM but not for all lines. My line didn’t pass the ‘feasibility test’ that they did. It depends on where you live and on the quality of the dsl that reaches you. So now hopefully all DSL users will have unlimited night and not only those who passed the feasibility test.
