Anyone have any experience with these packages? Do they definitely throttle? Seems both on here and on Vivaciti's forums O-Bit have been a nuisance on the regular ADSL packages in the past. Don't want to jump on an FTTC product with a similar experience.
Can't speak about FTTC but I am on the surfwise complete package that uses the Obit network.
Not really had any issues (See my earlier thread about a bit of odd latency for a day) and seem to get maximum throughput all the time. Have a very clean CQM chart with low pings if not using the connection .
On ADSL they sell their file sharing upgrade which removes all traffic shaping and FUP but this would be another £20 and not sure if it applies to the FTTC product?

Re the shaping I only noticed it on Iplayer but this was a mistake in the traffic shaping rules which has since been corrected. If I remember correctly this slowed the connection down to around 0.3 - 0.5Mb/s during business hours so may be an indicator of how P2P would be affected.
Interesting they guarantee a minimum 12Mb/s throughput on that package. Is that unique for a FTTC product?
