Billing Dates and Speeds... Question

Do you think any 'lumpiness' in billing dates might affect speeds?

I'm just trying to figure out whether part of the problem with speeds on PN post-ellacoya and shaping etc. could be down to a lumpy distribution of billing dates, with the result that on 'lumpy' reset dates people all rush out and download at breakneck speed... only to find they can't. because everyone else is trying the same?

Whereas, if you are the only person not to be billed on, say, the 20th of each month, but instead on say the 7th of each month, you would probably find your speeds massively improved between the 7th and 20th as everyone else starts to get throttled more?

could all be totally wrong - but just trying to figure out why things get so slow on PN.

I see what youre getting at, but I think its unlikely. More likely its just this ellacoya thing, its been mentioned that its mismanaged different traffic before.

Hi,

Looking at the billing reports there's not much difference between the 2nd and the 28th, 29th and 30th are a bit less and the 31st quite a lot lower (for fairly obvious reasons) with the 1st being the highest I think. Nothing out of the ordinary anyway.

Ok thanks.

I guess it's just the ellacoyas and lack of capacity then.

I can happily confirm that billing dates have nothing to do with any slowdowns.
