Internet speeds..

Yes, but not because of your usage, which is below the 100GB total / 30GB peak figures that have just been released.

The premier products have traffic shaping imposed so it will affect everyone, some more than others. Browsing will be affected the least & P2P/usenet will be affected the most and the busier the network is, the more slowdowns you will see.

If a BT speedtest shows normal speeds than it's PN traffic shaping affecting your speeds. If it shows slow speeds then it's a BT problem and you need to raise a ticket to get it investigated.
