Plusnet P2P and external FTP throttling is 8pm-10pm only, and restricts it to 2Mbps. Nothing else is affected, and the aim of it is precisely to prevent heavy downloaders interfering with other users' surfing, Skype etc.
On your own connection latency-critical stuff like gaming or VOIP/Skype is prioritised within your bandwidth, to stop your own P2P or streaming wrecking it.
It's an 18-month contract at £19.99 but can be bought out for £6 per outstanding month. Plus if you leave within the first 12 months the "free" router is charged. 250GB peak, unlimited midnight to 8am. Uploads are counted during peak.
