P2P congestion peek throttling panic!


[link to this post]
 
Hello, this is my first post as I am in a slight panic!

Signed up to EE a while back but just got connected today and tried to use P2P and found it to be almost dead.
I was on o2 before and had NO issues with P2P.
After some searching I have found that EE throttles:
"Between 6pm to 11:30pm on weekdays and 5pm to 11:30pm on weekends."
I had NO idea about this, if I had I wouldn't have joined.
It was probably in the small print but what can I do?
I use P2P a lot so can't do without.

Is there any way to prevent or disguise so I can get a proper service again?
Does it change anything which torrent software you use aka BitCommet Utorrent?
As I have just started using the service today can I leave the 12 month contract?

Hopefully this is in the right forum section, sorry if all these questions have been answered before but I found so many pages I just can't make sense of it!

Thank you!

Not w/out paying early termination charges. It was your responsibility to have read and accepted their T&Cs incl. the Traffic Management Policy and you would have ticked that you had done so.

Thank you.

Is there NO way around it though?

I am syncing my phone with Spotify and that is also unbelievably slow.

There must be a cooling off period for trying a service?

Assuming EE do not throttle VPN, you could subscribe to a VPN service and route your P2P traffic through it.

EE/Orange do not like BitTorrent p2p peer-to-peer file sharing running on their networks, they slow it down to slower than dial-up speed. tongue

Peculiar! Which one is correct? Does EE know themselves?

Your link:
When are typical peak hours? Weekdays: 6pm to 11:30pm Weekends: 5pm to 11:30pm
My link found by direct navigation from EE site's T&Cs:
When are typical peak hours? Weekdays: 4.30pm 1am Weekends: 1.30pm 1am
