BT email me every month saying they are going to restrict my speed at peak times (5pm-midnight) as I download 80GB and more every month,they never do

They always say I still have an unlimited allowance however

BT has been throttling me for months (peak times).

Got a letter the other day to say I had hit 80gb then a couple of days later to say I had hit 100gb. What I don't understand is when these ISP's claim 'super mega fast speeds that will melt your brain!!' but then throttle anyone who isn't just checking emails. I'm on highest package that BT provide but then get penalized for having the audacity to use the bandwidth I pay for.

Can you not change to another provider? Be/o2 are unlimited and offered very good up/down speeds for prices that won't break the bank

Still have a while left on my contract but I will change over at some point as BT have been steadily getting worse.

So what are you going to do for the remaining 30 days?
#24
I'm upto 120GB since the 1st of this month, thanks O2 for unlimited downloads, usually average 200GB a month though, this month has been carp for releases so far.

Watch the "stuff", listen to the "stuff"?
#26
I am very pleased with my provider and no throttling or slow speeds etc. and no contract. I was amazed to find this ISP after being with virgin and bt and aol who were crap!!
Unfortunately i cannot name this ISP as you all would go there and the speeds would probably drop and they would start throttling.

As someone else said watch and play the stuff I guess. 2MB only seems good enough for surfing and checking email now. Only paying £5 per month and get discounted sky TV so it's a big decision to switch

Can't get cable.

For the folks asking, I just use McAfee to record my usage but doesn't include Xbox 360 or downloads on mine and the girlfriends laptop

If that's the mid package you're on - it's changed to 10GB now IIRC.

That's pretty good (free), install it and it'll give you a report

Mine hasn't yet, though it does say 10meg line on my broadband page it says my connection has not been tested yet

Although my email says "Great news - Sky's broadband service is getting better. You could
also enjoy a faster service with improved reliability and stability in
your line connection. And all for the same low price."


It's not better if I have 30GB less than I originally signed up for

Could actually explain the poor connection speed

I'm getting 20 meg, unlimited fibre at Uni, :-D, can't wait.


Only 20meg you sure? Weak balling or is it a poor uni?

News is reporting Peter Mandelson is trying to push for people to have internet disconnected for downloading.

How exactly would they enforce this without either spying on people or just banning everyone with an above average internet usage regardless of the legality of what they are doing.
