Is it just me, or does it get throttles to as little as 5Kbs, when i normally have 600. What a joke - Sky here we come....
Thanks for this handy thread, if I don't get much joy for BT soon I will have a look to see if I can get sky instead, at the moment I have been finding it hard to find providers that I can get that are unliited downloads, even on a 1mbs line I have managed to get over the previous BT cap level of 300GB (not that them capping my line at peak times to 1Mbs when it was that anyway was much of a concern but it was amusing to get the emails).
Edited: Just checked, Sky only offer unliited package in some areas, elsewhere it is 40gb allowance
If you are NOT in a sky cabled area then i would forget about moving to them, as they will only offer you a 40gig monthly allowance. A couple of the old Blu Ray movies and you're about done for the month.
Only sky have done away with the "fup" as far as i am aware but you have to be in their cabled area to get that package.
if the throttle on P2P is causing you an issue for your legal dowloads (and penalising P2P but not things like Iplayer is very unfair) then there are possible alternatives depending on what you are downloading, for example I would imagine that usenet is not throttled and has the benefit of also allowing SSL connections.
