Can we have the full story about throttling when over the limit

Quote
If you do hit the usage limit you've set your speed will be rate limited to 128k until your next billing date. You can change this by increasing your maximum extra monthly spend or removing your Manage My Usage limit.
Which doesn't say anything about upstream throttling
Note my usage gets reset at midnight and the forum is no slower than usual which points out that it is your end not mine

Hi Jim,
Yes the upstream is managed at 64kbps when this happens.
