For about a week I have experienced significant P2P throttling with my BT Infinity 2, daytime and nighttime (all hours from what i can see). I am an IT pro so over the last couple of days I have gone through checks internally and am confident it is nothing my end (changed test machines, changed router, changed software checked cabling). Typically the P2P software will max out my connection with sufficient seeds - I always perform tests using well known fantasy TV show as they are so widely shared world wide, but also test with legit content that ISP's and anti p2p companies would not target. The test results are the same.
Over the last six months my general downloads speeds have significantly dropped, according to my Sam Knows box results below around June 30th there was a significant drop but also a general trend since.:

I would hazard a guess that local network admins at BT have implemented this to try to address bandwidth issues to prevent customers who are approaching the threshold for not receiving the advertised product/service.
1) Has anyone else seem similar in similar conditions?
2) Am I correct in thinking that BT promised customers that throttling/traffic shaping was a thing of the past and they no longer did that?
3) Are there hard and fast bandwidth limits with which customers can challenge/leave their ISP if they not receiving the advertised service, or is that only for ADSL?
