Why are speed so poor? My Theory

Speed are poor on both BB+ and getting worse on Premier judging from the posts I see here. I also see people moving to PAYG. Given that PAYG is prioritized above other accounts each time someone moves to PAYG some bandwidth moves with them leaving less for those left on BB+ and Premier.

So the greater number of people moving to PAYG the slower speeds will be for those not on PAYG.

Conclusion: move top PAYG of MAC off.

Afraid theres a flaw in your theory, namely premier was poor before payg became flavour of the month.

Plus have been pushing PAYG for sometime now and they have said that premier was not getting its fair share due to allocating more to BB+. So I do not agree with your flaw in my theory.

I am not suggesting it is a recent event BB+ was great last year because it was stealing bandwidth from Premier.

The reason seems obvious: insufficient capacity.

Yes there will always be the need for some management at peaks times and for a cap for big users - since capacity (and prices) cannot be infinite - but we are way beyond that it seems to me.
