And another lift from their web site...  statement from BT!!
"We believe that some areas of the BT 21CN WMBC platform have shown some signs of congestion over the last few weeks. This has come to light due to the detailed monitoring carried out by AAISP using FireBrick FB6000 LNSs as well as monitoring of other ISP links by thinkbroadband.
Working in partnership with BT to resolve this issue has helped prioritise planned network upgrades to ensure a ongoing quality of service. The planned upgrades increase the potential capacity of relevant links tenfold.
The cause of these issues appears to be unexpectedly fast take up of the new BT 21CN broadband services.
The first upgrades are being planned to commence w/c 11th January at London Watling Street metro node followed by a second upgrade scheduled for 19th January at the Birmingham BRAS's. BT will be working through the remaining nodes to increase capacity over the coming months so as to avoid further congestion issues."

So...  is PN still transferring people to 21CN?

[info] BT congestion update
We have the following briefing from BT :-
