EE throttling


[link to this post]
 
Just got my new EE broadband installed.

Somewhat to my surprise it gives me lower speeds than my old (8mbit Post Office) one!

Usenet is throttled to around 1.5mbit (~180kbyte/second).

Also there appears to be upstream throttling, I got:

37.48mbit/9.05mbit at 11am
and
35.47mbit/0.92mbit at 5pm

Bittorrent throttled separately looks to be about 1mbit.

The throttling means you get only 5% of the full bandwidth, for about 40% of the week.

The total data downloaded between 4:30pm and 1am should equal the data downloaded between 1am and 1:25am...

glasnost reckons flash video also throttled, to 5mbit. Not sure if this applies to Iplayer content. HD streaming video would be over 5mbit.

Usenet down to 128kbit now, lol.

What is the upload application that is throttled?

The available upload appears to have been throttled to 1mbit.

Not any particular application, that's consistent whether bittorrent, or a speed test app. Earlier I was getting 9bmit+.

Usenet now down to 4-5kbyte/sec

Is this anything different to what their traffic management policy states, if not, why did you choose EE?

Yes, Newsgroups and P2P are throttled between 4.30pm 1am on Weekdays and between 1.30pm 1am on Weekends as declared by EE: Traffic management in relation to EE Broadband or Fibre Broadband plans with unlimited usage allowance. Dunno why your upstream seems throttled unless it's in relation to P2P.

It's even worse in their "off-net" areas, which is why I asked your exchange, but Woking isn't.

Don't understand the equation in your last line. Did EE tell you that?

Still suffering over 98% loss of bandwidth at 1:15am due to throttling.

I thought it was supposed to end at 1am.

Edit: speed has gone up at 1:30am sharp.

So they lied, it is actually not throttled until 1am, but actually until 1:30am.
