We'll probably get some corporate BS about how the throttle is "necessary to ensure a good level of service for all users because of a minority of users who sit on usenet and p2p all day... and a reminder that we don't port block."
"But if you'd like to pay us an extra £10 per month for an unthrottled connection..."
I'd call a 20-30kbps throttle all but port blocking in name.
Simple fact is that if they keep this throttling as it is, they have to drop their current prices to remain competitive with others who offer the same kind of service otherwise they'll have a mass migration. Or they drop the throttle. (which they wont).
Whatever, I now don't believe anything they tell us. They have already lied to us with that letter saying that as a result of the Coms takeover it wont have any "adverse affect on your broadband connection"...
A 30kbps cap isn't adverse then?
And blaming OpenDNS when it was an Enta routing problem... not to mention the complete lack of support from 'support' - "replace your router, microfilters and cabling" pfffft.
