FTTC - Pro account

Now that FTTC is up and running at gorgeous speeds I did some homework to find out why Iplayer , PSN , peer-2peer etc etc etc aren't getting the full bandwidth and discovered that because Im on a Value package all these services are capped at various levels... you get what you pay for I guess.
My question is:  Is there still a Pro package availible to take advantage of the new speeds as I seem to remember that all the services where max'd ( line speed) out that.  ?

ahhh , I see it now...  bit hidden isn't it?  Shocked

20Mb usage is a bit mean isn't it ?  Sad  Can you confirm that ALL services are un-capped and 'linespeed'  ?
Thanks.

Re: FTTC - Pro account

I think you mean 20GB – 20Mb over FTTC would take just over half a second to download. Grin I can indeed confirm though that there are absolutely no restrictions to the speed of any protocols on Pro, although the product is still susceptible to traffic management in unusual cases (such as a significant portion of Plusnet's capacity going offline).

Re: FTTC - Pro account

indeed, but at £5 per 5GB, its not a cheap way of getting very fast speeds...
