I’m due to move house tomorrow and unfortunately my new house will have no internet available for at least 2-3 weeks. My node is nearly a year old and I’m a little concerned that I will be disqualified due to this downtime.
I have seen some posts around this from a couple of years ago where there wasn’t any solutions so not sure if there is anyway to gracefully pause the node before hand.
Hello and welcome.
When I moved to my new house I made sure I transferred my internet around the sametime I moved in my new house. Is that not possible for you to do?, because your only allowed a total of 288 hours of downtime.
2-3 weeks is fine, the cut off if there is one is a month or more…
ofc you will get some deletes because of all the downtime and you want it to be stable when it comes back online.
don’t think there is a cut off, this is incase of disasters and such… a node offline is inconvenient. the data stored is still good and perfectly viable for the network when it eventually comes back online.
Three wouldn’t on their unlimited data plans. I’ve run into many hundreds of gigs per month, numerous times Nothing said. Even been told by three employees that they’ve heard of companies tethering by mobile whole networks temporarily and transfering massive amounts of data over 5G. I’ve been with them years and never had an issue.
You also need to have a port forwarding feature for the mobile internet, which is usually not exist on smartphones and 4G/5G networks uses CGNAT by default.
So you likely will be forced to use also a VPN with port forwarding feature.
would need a decent amount of data, checked my service provider and a 7TB node.
this month which has been rather slow its used 288GB meaning with that avg a month would be near 1TB atleast.
only one subscription provides unlimited data, and it’s 30$ pr month.
so it could work, ofc it might also be slightly dependent on location, if its a busy location for mobile network, then the bandwidth might not be great.
but yeah seems like mobile could be a viable option,
duno if my provider runs CGNAT, but it is 5G
there would ofc be the benefit of having internet for 3 weeks in a new house rather than not, which might be a pretty deal depending on the household.
That wouldn’t change much. Comming back online every 3 days for let’s say 5 minutes out of a 12 hour window would still count as almost 12 hours downtime. The node would still get suspended and later disqualified.
