There are 2 peak times shown on the VMBU. Have you added them both together ?

You've fallen foul of the p2p, ftp and usenet limit. You can download using these protocols up to 20GB per month between 8am and midnight. If you exceed 20GB you are placed on level 1 management. Your p2p, ftp and usenet will be throttled to 512 speeds between 8am and midnight until your billing date, when it's reset. There are higher levels of management for these protocols if you download more between 8 am and midnight.Your http downloads and browsing shouldn't be effected by this management. . For a detailed explanation of the levels of management see the Vision for 2006.

EDIT
Better explanation here.

Ahh, they've caught you! Naughty, naughty person :-)

They now have a new super peak time limit for p2p/ftp of, I think 20Gb. You can still download 30Gb peak time as that is the limit, but not all of it can be p2p/ftp. Sadly, you have to track what Gb was p2p/ftp and what was browsing/e-mail etc.

For every 5Gb over the 20Gb you download, they will halve your speed until it will be quicker to download the file to your mobile phone :lol:

Never mind though, maybe being "managed" at 512 will actually be faster than being "managed" at full speed Tongue

Have fun
