Usenet - past midnight speed question

It was my understanding that, having exceeded 15gb, after midnight usenet would be in the bronze queue rather than bronze rate capped (30k/s). I'm sure last month I was getting close to full speed after 15gb when using after midnight

However the last two nights at 12-50 and 12-25 I have only seen speeds of up to 30k/s. I've raised a ticket only to be told:

"The speed on usenet will only update on your billing date. This isnt till the 25th off december."(sic).

Anybody else exceeded 15GB and if so what speeds are you getting after midnight?

Am I mistaken, has there been a change in policy, or is it a mistake?

Hi,

Whilst the rate limit is removed at midnight, it can take some time for the conneciton to speed up, due to the number of other people that are using it at the same time. Most people generally see a speed up closer to 1am.
