I appreciate that traffic can be slowed, and why, but when looking at Extra
and Fibre Extra
Level of speed reduction? : 256Kb/s across all traffic types
Now, I know this actually means that you're limiting traffic (peer-to-peer and USENET) to 256 kbps (though the usergroup link suggests 2 Mbps) but it sounds from the word reduction
as if that's not the actual speed
someone gets for such traffic, but a change from their original speed
. Perhaps that needs to be explained with different wording?
Perhaps you can clarify whether one gets 2 Mbps or 256 kbps, and while I'm in a questioning frame of mind, was I mistaken to think the Premium account offered 80 GB/month (though maybe it started at 120 GB/month - the figures are on the usergroup comparison, so again, not directly a PlusNet plc problem).
I only ask about the 120 GB because from memory I think I got 'only' 80 GB before changing at a later date to the 60 GB 'Extra' account. Am looking forward to my exchange getting FTTC and 250 GB a month... have to be careful to stick within 60 GB a month even though I am often up all night!
If you run a business, have a second ISP and backup web hosting...
