No download speed on programs

im new to plus net and i have option 1 and im just wondering why i cannot download from programs such as limewire and azureus (apple mac versions) there is no speed at all during any time of the day yet downloading from itunes is fine and at its normal speed so is every thing else like web pages. can anybody tell me if i have a firewall setup by plusnet or maybe other problem which might be stopping me downloading things

thanks

Hi,

Azureus and Limewire are classed as P2P traffic and as such on option 1 in particular do get restricted. You can see a table of expect speeds on each of the BBYW options here:
