As I understand it Plusnet Unlimited Fibre doesn't use any form of traffic management/shaping or rate limiting - it only uses traffic prioritisation for all of your house's traffic to ensure service quality. Does this mean that torrents, P2P, Usenet etc will all run at line speed 24/7 if nobody else in the house is using anything else?
The prioritisation works across the platform as well as within the individual user's connection. See this post
At first sight that can sound bad. But a moment's reflection show that is how it needs to be.
Bear in mind that apart from live streaming, the other protocols use tiny amounts of bandwidth, and even streaming HD isn't huge when compared to what P2P takes up. There is also the commitment (for the foreseeable future) to maintain the necessary capacity, and that he implies there seems to be a high probability that your speed would be below line speed due to the sources not coping rather than Plusnet's capacity.
Note a post he made in the Community forums:-
it's my job to ensure our tm is compliant with asa/ofcom. I also believe we are offering management that benefits customers. I.e. Prioritisation of time sensitive traffic over less sensitive traffic without making customers feel like their downloads are being limited.
