Usenet, P2P and non-Plusnet FTP traffic is rate limited to 2Mb between 8pm and Midnight. No other rate limits apply although there is still the prioritisation of the traffic depending on the queue it's in (Titanium, Gold etc).
I have a few related questions, and the linked threads don't seem to cover everything, so I hope this is the right thread to add my questions to. I'm planning which ISP to go for when FTTC is enabled for me (it is due and all local cabinets seem finished). I just wanted to confirm what you've said in my quote. Right now your website says that streaming is one of the protocols that will be "slowed down" for both Plusnet Value and Plusnet Extra. Is this not actually the case any more or did you miss that from your post? As a limit of 2Mb/s on streaming would me too low for many people, and would mean having to get Plusnet Pro.
Also, how much real-world difference does the prioritisation make if the protocol is said to be "managed" rather than "slowed down"?
There are so many things I'm taking into account with which service to go for, and I had decided on BT but since Plusnet have upped their speeds and have a pretty decent price, I'm now looking closer at what they will offer compared to BT.
Sorry for all the questions.
