All their packages are unlimited usage, and very good value. The only "limit" is their "fair usage policy",
So not unlimited then...
which says that customers using too much during peak time (5pm - midnight) will have their bandwidth limited "for the rest of the day". Some weeks I have very high usage during office hours, and I've not suffered any penalty that I've noticed.They don't have their equipment in our exchange, so I'm stuck to a BT 50:1/up to 8Mbps connection which is typically 6-7Mbps during the day, but <2Mbps (often <1Mbps) in the evening. With their equipment you can get a 20:1/up to 16Mbps connection, but I don't know how good that really is.
There is no 50:1 or 20:1 anymore. It's managed differently.Your slowdowns in the evening are caused by their own network, or interconnect with the BT Wholesale network being inadequate. Very probably nothing to do with the BT Wholsale network itself.
