I seem to remember there being a lot of fuss over BT advertising their enhanced ISDN service as broadband a while back because it was only 128kbps rather than the generally accepted minimum of 256 for ADSL. From my interpretation of the SUP there is a chance that someone could be permenantly limited to ~60kbps. Surely in this case what they are paying plusnet for is no longer technically broadband and therefore shouldn't be sold as such.

@Dawlishuk how does that hlep the OP?

@sciennes133 I think the reason they can get away with it is the 30:1 contention they are throttling back to within the contention ratio.
