End of Traffic Management


[link to this post]
 
Don't know if this has been announced previously?......new packages available from February. No traffic management on file sharing protocols on the Totally Unlimited portfolio. Customers can move to new package by signing a new contract.

Yes website has updated, the use of Totally is very important.

I don't see any significant difference between Unlimited Broadband @ £16 pm and Unlimited Broadband Extra @ £21 pm. True, the latter includes W/E calls. But you are paying £5 pm for something only worth £3.30 pm.

Also to get Anytime Calls costs an extra £5.15 pm on both, making them £21.15 pm & £26.15 pm respectively for identical products.

Have I missed something?

Extra adds the 50GB cloud storage and BT Net Protect Plus.

Otherwise the broadband side is the same product.

Customers have to start a new contract to get rid of the traffic shaping?

LAME!

I wonder if that means they have also removed the covert upstream P2P throttling that many people have suggested is running 24/7?

That is a tad annoying. Only been with BT for 1 week and they've changed the package... And as I got a discount on the first 3 months on their promotional offer I suspect if I "upgraded" now that I would lose the discount - so have to wait 3 months to get the new features at which point it will extend my contract - still maybe it will coincide with release of FTTP in which case I may do that and get the benefits then.

I wonder if the blocking of pirate bay has anything to do with this.
