When will restrictions be removed?

Hi, I had 'light' restrictions placed on my account, and following this changed my account to BBYW level 3, which has now become active (I have also disconnected and reconnected as re the email i received). My account,however,still seems to be restricted ( I can only download from Usenet at 50-60 k insted of the 400-500 k i normally get). When will these restrictions be removed?

Thanks,

M

Hi,

I've checked your account and it's set correctly for BBYW Option 3. The Usenet speed though sounds about right though for the time you posted, there are rate limits in place on Usenet between 4pm and midnight as per this page:

The rate limit is removed at midnight so you should now be seeing an increase in speed.

yep, speed has gone up again...my fault, I should've read the BBYW info page more thoroughly ;-) , but thanks for checking it for me.
