PN Value speed for browsing 6pm-10pm?

I'd like to check that I understand the expected maximum speeds using the PN value contract for ordinary web browsing (no gamng / music or video downloading): it looks like between 6pm and 10 pm it's restricted to 192 kb. Have I understood the table correctly?

No, it is line speed all the time (subject to any local contention and speed limits on the sites you visit).

Thanks - that table is very helpful. I assumed that browsing came into the "other" category in this table, as I could not see it specifically listed. Any idea where it actually is in this table?

... but it's the same as "streaming" which is listed - i.e line speed at all times.
