Re-contracted Infinity 2. Confused about P2P throttling.

Re-contracted Infinity 2 on Friday. Order is complete. I have 50GB on BT Cloud. I'm confused about P2P throttling. I've phoned BT up and have been told that my P2P file sharing is NOT supressed between 16:00 and 00:00 Monday to Friday and 09:00 and 0:00 Weekends. But they are very very slow. My only option to carry on forking out for a monthly Seedbox sub.

What's going on?

I was looking to recontract tonight, but think i will wait if this is the case.

 

I thought it was p2p removed for all times of the day

recontacting to one of the new totally unlimited contracts does lift the restrictions on p2p

Reminder: Check whether if p2p throttling is unrestricted at all times or not, if I was to recontract, given this its going to be very unlikely.
