Sky LLU, my P2P is being throttled to non existance!


[link to this post]
 
It was fine till a few days ago, I think its because I reckon I have downloaded 25-40 gig in a week as reinstalled Windows so did a gig of drivers and updates, reinstalled a game which including paches was like a 8-10 gig download(as misplaced the discs) did a few iplayer downloads and such.

I noticed my P2P has stopped to the point that during the day its 0.1 kB/s even pushing it up to about 4.kB/s for a few seconds about once or twice a minute for a second or two before going back down.

I tested a Openoffice download and get the same for that.

So am I being throttled due to usage or is it everyone?

Thanks, I am not in an affected area though plus direct downloads max out my line speed(16 meg) though browsing sometimes sticks.

I am in Ayrshire

Tried contacting sky and got this foreign sounding woman and it was difficult to try and explain that I get fast downloads from direct download sites but P2P only worked in evenings after about 10pm then stop around 4am.

She just said that Sky dont support P2P and thats why I get slow downloads for that.
