download speed (p2p)

hi, my download speed from early evening to midnight has been restricted to 5 kb since about a week now. During the night and mornings I'm achieving 600-700 kbs. Any thoughts please and please use laymans terms. Thanks

That doesn't sound too far off to what you should be getting
P2P traffic is shaped at various times of the day, have a look here for an idea http://www.kitz.co.uk/isp/plusnet_shaping.htm

Have a look at the following link on the Plusnet Support Pages, titled Broadband Download Speeds.
It does what it says on the tin...

We think that our customers should know exactly what to expect from our broadband products - most ISPs restrict speeds in some way, but very few will share the details with their customers.
Here we'll show you the download speeds we aim for on our Residential and Business broadband products.

Hi dark1,
Different packages have different traffic management. Our Pro package is not restricted in any way.  Have a look here for some comparisons.
