I wondered if any of you had experiences of using OpenVPN (or any other VPN service) with BT Infinity? My area is enabled at the end of the month and I am thinking of switching to Infinity. I use a VPN provider some of the time and a program which uses OpenVPN to connect to the USA which enables me to watch programs on Hulu etc. Im currently on an 8Mbit connection and it works fine. Ive read forums and the BT Infinity usage policy and it makes not mention of VPN throttling - just the p2p/torrent throttling during peak times. Some posts on the BT forums mention slow/unusable VPN speeds but others don't.
Do any of you use VPNs and do BT throttle the speed at all? Im scared to switch in case the speed is throttled to something unusable. I would have thought that they could not throttle it since the tunnel is encrypted but I suppose they could know that it is VPN traffic somehow and restrict the speed?
Any advice would be appreciated
