BB+ Usage Graph

What happened on Tuesday. Usage Graph
It is showing a step change of about 150Mb/s on uploads at about 6.00am which has been maintained subsequently and the peak downloads usage also jumped about 100Mb/s between Monday and Tuesday but now seems to be slowly reducing.
This is an enormous percentage increase (about 150% in uploads and 25% in downloads).

Thank you Peter.
I was aware of the Ellacoya changes but I was really surprised that the upload usage would jump so much unless there was a massive improvement in P2P upload speeds which hasn't been commented on by users also the sharp increase in download on the Tuesday morning hasn't been repeated on subsequent days.
With respect to the improvement at the next billing date I fail to understand how that affects BB+ as until now there have been no announcements about progressive throttling other than the vague hint in the vision update announcement which hasn't been clarified in any of the subsequent statements by representatives. This is also puzzling as the well reported throttling of FTP should have shown up on the download graph and hasn't.
Perhaps therefore the P2P etc. are being slightly less throttled to take up the slack from the FTP inclusion in that band. This would explain the jump in uploads as P2P generates a lot of uploads whereas FTP doesn't.
Just realised the Ellacoya changes on the Tuesday although stated as having no customer impact in fact probably introduced the new policy before it was announced on Wednesday

BROADBAND PLUS:
Broadband Plus is not designed for heavy downloading. More than 95% of Broadband Plus customers use less than 10GB per month so the vast majority of customers will see an improvement in download speeds for outside of peak 8am-midnight hours and light and moderate customers will also speed improvements. Heavier users will see downloading in peak times get progressively slower as they download more and more.


Are we to assume from this that BB+ users are, firstly having their (non html/email) useage throttled, and then secondly, having all useage (post 10G?) capped!! Evil
