Going from BB+ to PAYG

I recently changed from BB+ to PAYG 4GB to ensure I had good gaming with PS3 and no delays web browsing at peak.

Am I correct in believing PAYG is not restricted as at around 7-9PM I can still click a web page then get significant delays for a page to load while in morning or early afternoon everything runs smoothly?

Went over to PAYG to get away from these delays (or so I assumed).

No, but did a couple of speed tests on PN and I'm getting arounf 700kbps (usually 940kbps). Its as if there's a queue I'm waiting in before I get a response if that sounds clear!

Read your little guide so it looks like I should not be getting traffic managed on PAYG.

EDIT:

Could be other peoples wireless interfering with mine as I even get a delay when calling up the routers web interface which should be nothing to do with the broadband side.

Your little guide as confirmed theres no traffic control so thats fine.

Thanks for feedback.

Can you do a wired test for comparison?

One thing I have seen make a dufference was where the MTU on the router was lower than on the PC - the router must be the same or higher. I usually say put the router up to 1500 (the maximum) and forget it.

I had a similar problem, not with conflicting with a neighbour's wireless network but with a video sender which uses the same frequency band. Switched the frequencies so they are at opposite ends of the band and it's fine now. Worth a try, or as jelv says try wired instead.
