Re: Peak hours bandwidth/possible throttling.

I dont disagree, but when its promoted as Unlimited it shouldnt be throttled atall, the amount of money they make from customers is obscene, And for the money especially for unlimited packages should allow us to have unlimited internet, not just what they deam neccesary

Re: Peak hours bandwidth/possible throttling.

the unlimited refers to the amount of data you can download in a month nothing to do with your speed p2p protocols are throttled by most isps

Re: Peak hours bandwidth/possible throttling.

there is no secret that p2p downloads are 'managed' at peak times by BT.  it is in the T&C and a google search will confirm that it is no secret

 

I would add that this thread is 15 month old

Re: Peak hours bandwidth/possible throttling.

I understand its in the policy, however advertising as unlimited, when it clearly has limits is misleading in itsself.

Re: Peak hours bandwidth/possible throttling.

this has been the subject or many posts in the past and as has already been said you can download unlimited amount data and it cannot refer to unlimited connection or download speed

Re: Peak hours bandwidth/possible throttling.

Unlimited = Data Usage.

 

Or you could have unrestricted use 24/7, however then you rely on the other customers of your ISP letting you have reasonable speed with their usage habits, I learnt sometime time ago not everyone thinks of others, cynical yes, I bet its true.  Either way in my mind there is no unrestricted/unthrottled broadband service available.
