I'm on Be* Unlimited. Synced at 18058kbps down, and 1399kbps up.
There is no shaping here - Nor are there any caps.
Unlimited means Unlimited. The whole internet is out there, and Be* don't tell you when is best to surf / download.
Not in any rush for VM to get here any more after reading this. I wouldn't like to be 'recommended' when to do stuff on the web. Do they tell you when to watch TV? What about when to sleep?
I'm not VM's ideal demographic. There is absolutely no need for VM's proclivity to shape, other that greed. Fibre was supposed to handle so many more data-streams - Wow! - You only show up with a nippier sync speed... just don't try to use it lol.
Of course everything is relative. There is no downstream throttling on the 50Mbps or 100Mbps products. Even if I hit the upload limit and that was throttled it would still exceed yours. If my 50Mbps could only manage the 18Mbps your Be delivers I'd be calling it in as a fault.....
If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem.
