Should I re-test the limits of Koodo unlimited data?

Koodo gives 10 days of unlimited data to all new activations.
When I did this before, I used 2.8 TB data in 96 hours and nothing happened.
Should I try the full 10 days now and see how much data I can use without consequences?

All for the sake of science experiments, sure why not.

The worse damage is $50 overage to do the experiment as mandated by CRTC.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Public Mobile $37 5GB, 2x $13 250MB, $7 50min/50text, 2x $8 50min/50text,

"Regular" 4k video wouldn't even put a dent in that.

Uncompressed would easily cover it.

But there's better more reliable ways of doing it.

Or OP could have actually used it for something useful.

That throughput equates to only about 70mbps constant which is easily doable, especially over a 4 day period.
With regular 4k video, you'd need multiple streams going.

Torrented academic research, Linux distros, and other non-copyrighted files. I kept deleting and re-adding the same files. I can achieve much better speeds now with the latest phones.

all new activations.
Are these for BYOD activations with a set amount of data (like 30$ for 1gb) or strictly BYOD pay-per-use data plans?
