Re: Upload speed

You pay for 'up to' speeds and all the terms and conditions of fair use were there when you signed up. Ignorance is not an excuse.


And mainly you pay for download with them. Part of the docsis trade off.

Re: Upload speed

If you upload more than the limit in the set amount of time, they will cap your upload speed for 60minutes yes (to 50). If you then breach the 2nd threshhold they will lower the upload some more (to 35%).


If you require a larger upload cap then you will need to upgrade your package to a larger one, or consider going to the gamer package which does not have an upload cap.

Re: Upload speed

to add to what Shafreya said the upload Traffic Management has been in place for many years (6+ years) so it was part of the terms when you signed up. You may of never noticed it or triggered it before but its always been there
