yes. As soon as you exceed 15gb the following occurs:

Constant 30kb/s until the end of the current month when the usage is reset
Even offpeak / weekends still only 30kb/s

Well, I'm down at 30k at the moment, for being such a naughty person.

One thing I have noticed is that if I leave +net to regulate the bandwidth on downloads, they have lots of corrupt blocks. If I use Netlimiter to limit the bandwidth to 28k, then there are no corrupt blocks.

I think that whilst +net consider their steps in implementing this reduction to users, they should also look at the way they are limiting the bandwidth. Clearly they are using some pretty simple (though effective) limiting mechanism that merely reduces the number of packets being sent out rather than actually reducing the available bandwidth to the protocol.

Yep, I've just exceeded 2 Gb, it's taken me all day to do it as I've been stuck at 30k too. It's become a joke now. Cry

I don't why the two packet shape in different ways, and more importantly, why an off-the-shelf home-user package manages the bandwidth better than an ISP based one, but there you go.

Only a couple of days to go before migration takes place Cry
