Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere but can anyone clarify the exact rules are for transaction charges which I want to avoid

The clarification I want is:
(a) Is the free transaction limit still 1000 bets per hour?
(b) Is the hourly transaction limit for each 24x1 hour time period or for a rolling 60 minute period?
For example if 1000 bets were placed between 15:30:00 and 15:59:59 and another 1000 bets were placed between 16:00:00 and 16:30:00 would that be exempt from charges even though 2000 bets had been placed in a 1 hour period betweed 15:30 and 16:30?
(c) Am I right in thinking small bets under £2 count as 2 transactions towards the hourly limit?

a) Yes, obviously if you pay comms it does offset charges
b) Yes every hour charge by the hour, not a rolling period and counts website bets too
c) I've no idea how BA calculates it's bet placement, but the API does allow under £2 bets if the payout is >=£10 so it depends on the bet make up as to whether BA needs to palce a bet, adjust the stake then change the odds.

Bets under <£2 are counted as 2 transactions by BA
