Legal thief

Having been within the hosting industry I have seen many web hosts oversell their disk space but more importantly their data transfer and ultimately their bandwidth. This article is not about that though as I am sure you can read the horrors of mass overselling on Webhosting Talk but rather more about the oversell of bandwidth on the backend of the Internet – The Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

It is no secret that Internet Service Providers do over sell their bandwidth as otherwise they would not make as large amount of profit (no matter what ISP tells you, they are lying until they can prove otherwise which they have NOT yet done at the time of posting). They know or rather they hope that not everyone will use their connections at the same time as if they do then they know everything is going to lagging hell.

I am sure your Internet Service provider does the same. Go and check their terms of service and if it says something like the following then you can be sure your Internet Service Provider is overselling.

In order to give the best service possible, we limit your max speeds during peek times in order to allow others to have  a good browsing experience.

What that basically means is the following:

LOL we are so totally over selling our bandwidth and if people starts to try and use what they paid for during peek hours when everyone else is on then our systems is going to crash and burn LOL

Oh and if we see you using to much data transfer out of your unlimited amount which we can not physically supply anyway then we are going to ban you for “excess amount of usage”. Oh and we also do not give your MAC addresses without maxing out your credit card LOLZOALG

Thing is, Internet Service Providers simply can not handle the amount of people they are selling too. They really just hope you do NOT use what you pay for and if you do then they will either cap you further (and then blame it on you are using to much), block you or something on those lines.

I am sure you are now asking – But at least it is cheaper for me. Due to overselling their bandwidth they are passing the savings onto me. Well the answer is no they are not. You are not getting any savings out of it and ultimately, you are losing OUT on what you pay for as you simply can not use it (if you get the full speed in the first place).

And Internet Service Providers will not admit it although everyone knows they do it as simply if they do then customers will moan saying they are not getting what they pay for.

So what happens when you actually complain about your Internet connection being capped. Well, it sounds something like this:

You: Hello. I am currently ringing up wondering why my Internet connection speed is less then 512kbps even though I pay for a 8mb broadband and have a unlimited data transfer plan.

Support: नमस्ते, मेरा नाम एलन है

You: Umm, hello ?

Support: आज मैं तुम्हें कैसे मदद कर सकता

You: Do you speak English ?

Support: क्या आप चाहते हैं कि साथ आलू

You: Can I speak to someone else ?

Support: मैं समर्थन कर रहा हूँ .. me no do ?

You: Can I speak to a manager please ?

Being forwarded please hold…

Manager: مرحبا كيف يمكنني مساعدتك اليوم

You: Oh fuck this shit.

And then when you come to cancelling it the same thing happens. So ya to sum it all up. Internet Service Providers do not provide you with what you are actually paying for and if you use to much then you are kicked off.

Oh well, 3G time I guess.

This ends right now

I am aware that you enjoy parody, funny or just out right ranting articles a lot more than serious ranting but I think it is time we had a talk about something. For many years now a certain a lot of “people” have been denied access to the very basic rights that we enjoy today.

The one right I am going to talk about and what we can do to help these lot is the Internet. For al long these lot have been DENIED access to the Internet and importantly the World Wide Web for what is NO reason at all. It is not even like China where the Internet is censored – we are talking about completely NO access to the Internet in any shape or form.

ITS LOOKING AT ME

I am sure most people who reads Tweaked for your Pleasure knows that marketing is very important when you make a website so I will not go on and explain about it in much detail.

Without marketing your website will have to rely on people finding it themselves and then your site spreading via word of month (which Snat’s Blog did – I never understood website marketing when I started).

One of the “best” ways people would advice you to do is to use a service known as Google Adwords to help market your website. Well Google Adwords works well when you know how to use it but more importantly for this article, Google Adwords allow people to publish image adverts on websites.

Guess what…

mines… I hate people who says this. Over the last few weeks I have noticed that most people I have chatted to over some form of communication have started a chat or have during the chat asked me to guess something which is quite random and I had little in the way of knowing what the hell that person meant.

One good example is this;

Guess what I did today !

How the hell do I know and even, why the hell should I even know unless I was involved at which time you would not even be asking me anyway. Sometimes I think I am at a fair or something when people keep telling me to guess something but the problem is, it is a game I can not win.

Shut them up

It seems everyone either loves them or hate them but children are one of the most annoying things that exist on Earth. While children are needed to keep our genetic blood lines going but children should not have a free pass to do whatever the hell they like and get away with it.

The topic about children has came up before on Tweaked for your Pleasure but I just had to write and try just one thing. While I was in the British Library the other day just doing some peaceful research for a future blog articles (yes, I really was researching) and some child was placed right next to me screaming as loud as she could.
