    I use a pay as you go internet dongle thingy:p I know its cloud based but is WRSA permanently connected to the net or does it simply update when required....I obviously don't want my allowance drained by an application if I can avoid it.

    there is a WSA official forum here on wilders where you can ask

    btw I don't recommend WSA or other cloud based programs if you have a pay to go internet, even if is not a great ammount of bytes

    If you measure how much bandwidth WSA requires, it's actually far, far less than a conventional AV. We have many users on pay-as-you-go internet (myself included!) and WSA's connections don't pose a problem at all.

    Just be sure that when you install, you don't cancel the initial scan. On top of it being important for finding any missed detections, it also provides a significant layer of caching which will further reduce the volume of transmissions.

    Hope that helps! :)

    Pay as you go. Isn't that like dial up?

    Not sure but I don't think it is. :doubt: In my country you can do that with a 3G USB modem. Example, buy a weeks usage for $5 etc...

    Yes. Pay as you go is the the way you are charged the connection. This type of contracts are normally implemented with a dial-up interface (username/password - connect/disconnect).

    Dialup in a sense, but much faster :) You pay for 10GB for one month, for example, rather than an "all you can eat" plan (although those don't really exist anymore...)

    Oh ok.

    We are pretty well still on all you can eat here in Canada. There are new faster services starting though that have caps like that.

    BTW, after a week with Essentials...loving it!!!

    I didn't knew you called it "Dialup" that was something we had "back then" so I was confused by that word :oops: But I guess it works similar in the sense that you pay for 1 day, 1 week, etc...
