Over a year ago I was with the PO for Phone and Broadband, which started out very good. However, when Talk Talk got involved I noticed the broadband speeds at peak times were being throttled back. PO customer support acknowledged this was the case and that it was 'unfixable' and that I could quit my contract at anytime without penalty. So, I switched to BT and have had no problems with speed or anything else other than the engineers periodically messing about in the road and cutting us off - which would affect any supplier.
Now my BT contract is coming up for renewal and there's going to be a big price hike and I'm considering going back to the PO since their prices are good and they categorically state on their web site that there is no throttling back at peak times ' unlike some suppliers'. This was never specified before.
My question is: does anyone have experience of throttling back or not at peak times? The best I can get anyway is 7Mbps.
