Many people seem to be flocking to Plusnet yet I ruled them out years ago when on Freeserve because they were apparently traffic shaping. I went with Newnet and then to O2 where I am now and have been for about four years. Very happy too.
I read in a post from a Plusnet support person elsewhere on this forum that 'We don't block or rate limit P2P on our products/network if you choose the Unlimited service'.
Then I read that Plusnet's traffic management/shaping/prioritisation or whatever it's called now, DO (somehow) restrict P2P downloads according to the metals pecking order. P2P is one above 'lowest priority'.
Which is it? P2P is slowed, or it isn't?
Also, does this restriction work on a network basis or an individual line basis? i.e. if others in my house are doing Skype and gaming, my P2P downloads will be slowed OR irrespective of what people in my house are doing, if everyone on the network is doing Skype/gaming etc. then my P2P will practically disappear?
