Given 3G is the only broadband option here, when I read the thread title I thought "Yes... finally. Great. We're not going to have half a dozen users running P2P leeching all the limited bandwidth away"
The information at the first link doesn't seem entirely clear to me as to whether this affects us or not (PAYG, using about 7GB per month)
"The vast majority of our customers will not experience this, but we do manage the traffic of the very highest data users (top 5%) in the busiest areas, where lots of people are connecting to our network at once."
I suspect I'm actually one of perhaps three regular users of that cell ("area"?) and potentially the heaviest user overall given that it's our home broadband connection and it's connected 24/7 (though, not downloading 24/7)
Our main usage is during the day 9am - 5pm (web, ftp) and used to be a solid 6Meg down 1.5Meg up all the time regardless of time of day (it can run to 11Meg+ but that would need a HSPA+ router and ours is only HSPA)
The speed has dipped lately down to about 5Meg but today it seems faster than it was, and the latency has dropped back down to the 40ms to 60ms region whereas it was nudging up towards 80. Wonder when this came in, and if it's related.
