KC boosts download limits for all broadband services
East Yorkshire internet service provider (ISP) KC has increased the monthly download allowance for all of its broadband packages.
From Wednesday (August 1st 2012), subscribers to the Karoo Mid, Lite and Pro services and KC Home bundles will see their download limits rise by a minimum of ten per cent, while allowances will be doubled for certain products.
KC said the move will allow broadband customers to download and stream more content without worrying about exceeding their monthly usage cap.
The increase reflects the ever-rising volume of traffic on KC's broadband network, driven by the popularity of online applications such as BBC iPlayer and Netflix.
In addition, the ISP said more households are now connecting multiple devices - such as games consoles, smartphones and tablets - to the internet.
Nick Thompson, director of consumer services at KC, said: "We've made these changes to give our customers even greater freedom to download the content they love and the services they want to use, without having to pay a penny more."
The news comes shortly after a TalkTalk study revealed more than two million Brits are being hit with extra data charges after exceeding their monthly allowance.
