P2P throttling for games like FIFA

I would like to know if I am being throttled when it comes to gaming online because FIFA is a p2p game and I have horrendous connection problems with it in every match no matter what day, time or game mode. 

 

Thanks.

It depends on your package but even if you are on a package with throttling thats only during peak times.

I am on Infinity 2 totally unlimited, the only game I have a problem with is FIFA which is p2p, I can play other EA games like Battlefield fine without any problems whatsoever it's just FIFA no matter which one whether it's 12,13,14

You can check by running a Glasnost test. If throttled for P2P it would effect all P2P games.

This tests for stuff like bittorrent, what do I choose to see see if gaming is throttled? http://gyazo.com/2f40f156eff9e348cd77dd74444670db

Says there is no suggestion of me being limited.

Then that's not the cause of your problem. As previously been said, its not a BT problem, it can't be if it's happening on other ISPs and with other players around the world. If I were you I would be looking for another game to play. Surely no game is worth the agro that this one has been giving you.
