Need some advice/suggestions. We are on the Liberty 50 plan with free access from 3am-6am at generally 8 - 9 average mbps all the time. We purchased and Xbox one for grands to play when visiting. We know that we will not generally allow internet access for downloads or on line gaming. We do want to download a free digital game that came with the system. Unfortunately, this game is 50g to download. Of course that would use a full months data. I’m thinking that I will start it during the free zone about 4am tomorrow. We have 5 g remaining in our cycle which starts over Sunday at midnight. At our speed, I know it can’t finish during the free zone. Once we hit our limit and our data is slowed, do you think the game will be able to complete the download? Anyone have a suggestion on how to accomplish this?

I know what you are saying, but do things the old school way. Buy a cheap Christmas lights timer and it will turn off the XBox's power.

Lol. That would be effective. Hard on the equipment over time, but effective nonetheless.
