Hi everyone,

 

This sound good news especially for games using p2p protocol (suach as FIFA for example - when creating a direct game connection with a friend without using the EA servers). But I am still confused as to what is going to happen to existing customers so would appreciated if a mod could confirm the following.

Currently I am (as many others) on the original BT Infinity Option 2 (unlimited download version). Is the p2p throttle still applicable or will it be removed without us having to take a new 18 month contract?

 

Many thanks in advance to confirm.


Games were never throttled.

Personally I've never seen slow downs at peak times on FTTC the backhaul should be able to handle it but we will soon see if it can.

Re: New Totally Unlimited usage

Then you are lucky. I see some drop from around 5pm until 11pm and I have seen others saying the same, that said those who wanted to P2P knew ways around this anyway...

Depends which package you go for, Infinity 1 has an activation charge of £25 though I don't know if this is applied if you re-contract.

No Don't worry!

 

You are part of the existing customer base, you are still being throttled, along with everyone else, and together we can ensure a smooth experience for future customers 🙂

Re: New Totally Unlimited usage

You also get cloud storage 

50GB free is certainly a significant amount; I'd never bothered with the 2GB before because I already had free Dropbox and IDrive for small amounts and a paid unlimited with SquirrelSave.

 

I had guessed that BT Cloud would not be very good (biased?) anyway; but with 50Gb being offered I thought I'd have quick look.

 

backup speed to SquirrelSave:  around 15 or 16 Mbps

backup speed to BT Cloud: around 1.1 to 1.7 Mbps.

 

I can't see any option that is giving a bandwidth limit option.  Such products sometimes have them; with default set appropriate for ADSL.  Uninstalling before I've completed the first test backup.
