The cap is in the form of shaping; it will affect any constant utilisation rather than small utilisation.. you don't notice from websites because its stateless and very low load ;)

Its really annoying but unfortunately with many isps, cable or dsl, the shaping kicks in and your speeds drop + connection resets. Very annoying... takes all the benefits of the speed away :(


It is the lesser of two evils for me. ADSL is still shit here, so speeds are not even close to what I get now. My connection gets cut to 5 meg down for 4 hours if I grab 3 or so Gig in any 4 hour period. Not great but not too bad either. Nothing is permanent, throttle wise, and no more costs are incurred by myself.

I may consider giving ADSL2+ a go, when I can eventually get it. lol
