VERY slow downloads

i've just moved from option 1 to option 2 because i wasn't getting any download speed i wanted on P2P programs such as limewire and azureus and now the speed is not stable at all which is making downloading impossible again.
i understand the time restrictions but i would of thought i should be getting better download speeds then just 10kbs!!! (if im lucky)

is there anything i can do to fix this problem before i leave plusnet for good.

bt speed test
IP profile for your line is - 7150 kbps
DSL connection rate: 448 kbps(UP-STREAM) 8128 kbps(DOWN-STREAM)
Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 3580 kbps

Nothing you can do at your end except to leave and vote with your feet.

PN won't allow decent P2P speed unless it's in the middle of the night (which means leaving your PC turned on all night).

Unfortunately PN don't realise that using p2p is what made them so popular in the first place.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
