BT's Traffic Management Policy on P2P Usage

[link to this post]
1. Is there a specific amount of data that can be transfered over P2P that will then trigger traffic management, if so how much data is allowed over P2P before Traffic Management kicks in ?

or is it that ...

2. All data transferred over P2P during Peak hours is automatically traffic managed, if this is the case, by how much ...
for example on BT Infinity option 2 lets say I get a theoretical 35 Mbit per sec download speed under normal usage and I decide I want to download a file using P2P during peak hours, by how much will my 35 Mbit per sec connection be cut.

thanks in advance for any replies

all p2p and torents are throttled during peek periods these are approx 3pm to midnight 7 days

im not on infinity nut if i try and run a torrent i see less than 10kbs during peek periods

my name has been changed to save me from more company disciplinary procedures.
