I can download at around 2MBps via HTTP or Steam, but torrents (at the same time) no chance.
18Mbps from the TBB speedtest while torrents languish at 512kb/s
I signed up (paying nearly £50 a month) for the FTTC offering with a 50gb on peak allowance (now 100gb) with unlimited off peak. It seems I would have been wiser going to BT, at least they are open about traffic shaping.
Before anyone trolls, heres an excerpt from the FTTC FAQ...
Q. Do Fair Usage Policies apply to Eclipse superfast fibre broadband?
A. We don't operate a Fair Usage Policy, but state usage limits clearly. Our products come with a fixed usage limit across a month, for daytime use. Between the hours of 11pm and 9am, however, we offer unlimited usage. This is Truly Unlimited, with no Fair Usage Policy, no throttling and no caps."
I haven't come close to exceeding my on-peak limit yet so the ball is in Eclipses court.
