Is This Normal!!!!!????

Noticed i have reached level 1 of the Restriction for this month, and now my internet connection is ridiculously slow! Bandwidth seems to be capped at roughly 400kbps down and 35kbps up speeds. P2P is out of the equation all together, as it will completely fail to connect.

I know that the restrictions are strict, but never thought they were this ridiculously strict. I am unable to do any online gaming, which is very annoying as i have just bought Battlefield 2142.

As per the Title - IS THIS NORMAL?Huh

No, not for most ISPs no. For plusnet, yes it's not only becoming normal, but worse too.

well i feel its over the top! i would understand if i had reached Level 3 on the FUP, but as it is its under 10% of my normal connection speed.

Other thing is, i've apparently used 66% of my allowance - well my billing date is in 2 days, so why can't i have my full usage allowance in that time - surely if its a usage allowance im entitled to it!

So much for unlimited Broadband! At least i have my MAC code now.

Recommendations from dick headed friends. I'll never trust that again.

Incidentally, has anyone noticed PN's free 30 day trial is still offering uncapped bandwidth? - Whats with the cherry picking for theiving other ISPs clients?
