[DW7000] Just fap'D during fap free period!

Looks like hughes must have changed the fap free period times. Have downloaded during the free period from 2am-7am EST for years without problems. Until today when I noticed at 6:58am getting ready to shut off the downloads I noticed I have been fapped! I had 134MB last time I checked. This total should not have been cut into unless it was past 7am (which is was not)

So obviously the fap free times must have changed starting today. WTF!

Anyone hear anything about this??

At one time there was some discussion about EST and Eastern Daylight time, You may wish to look further along that line.

If you happen start a download 1 minute early it is not considered as the first minute metered but not the rest. the whole file transfer is metered.

this is not true.

conversely, if you are downloading a file, and it pushes you into a FAPed state, your speeds are immediately throttled, it doesn't wait for your current download to finish.
