Slingshot: Hi,

yeah it does relate to the broadband bundle.

Also, this will hopefully resolve more Unlimited customers peak time speed issues.

Thanks,
Ben


Hey Ben,

Can we downgrade our plan and remain off-contract?


Hi, 

Yes of course you can, no plan changes instate a contract unless it was for a specific offer or promotion that stated otherwise.

Thanks,
Ben

What peak time speed issues?

Only speed issues that I've noticed are related to whatever caused this to start happening again.

Detruire: What peak time speed issues?


Apparently some people are having some... :P

Some congestion does occur and hopefully this will resolve it.

Those affected, let us know how you go!

Thanks,

Not really issues, more just a decrease from 1000kbytes/s to around 300kbytes/s.

This is beyond a joke tonight. We didn't have any issues until the price increase email. Not impressed.

Agreed. Torrents that should for sure be on the cache are not seeing any action from the cache, many are just sitting there with no peer connections despite many many peers being available, and if I change to using my other ISP quickly getting connections and transfering.

If it wasn't for the good Youtube speeds I'd think that there was something wrong with my line. ~1Mb/s at 10:30PM, ~1MB/s at 10:30AM. Used to be ~900kB/s at this time of night from the same places.

(I'll send a PM if I can repeat this tomorrow night.)

If we change plans but then decide to change back to Unlimited, would we have to go on contract again? 

I'm happy with the price increase if it resolves the speed issues. I had given up on watching youtube in HD in the past few weeks.

Again, having issues with Spotify. Can stream over 3G fine. When are these speed increases going to happen?

I think that quite a few of us would like to know the answer to this.

Hi, 



Chaging plans doesn't affect contacts at all.
