Peak times


[link to this post]
 
What are the actual peak times?
Is daytime peak? I know evening will be and after midnight or is it 2am off-peak?
I would rather keep my downloads off-peak.
Anyone know?

BT don't have peak/off-peak. All usage counts all day both ways (Unless on Unlimited package).

Thanks I know that, it's not about usage it's more about being considerate to other users and even being considerate to BT.

Midnight to 8am is off peak for many ISPs. Peak time will generally be business hours and up to 10pm.

Scottish Labour politician: “The SNP are on a very dangerous tack. What they are doing is trying to build up a situation in Scotland where the services are manifestly better than south of the border in a number of areas.”

Interviewer: ”Is that a bad thing?”

Scottish Labour politician: “No, but they are doing it deliberately.”

Why? Oh, I see! You are now asking for the unreal peak times.
