Jase2985: it must be the placebo effect, as the 150gb plan doesnt come under the traffic shaping T&C's
im maxing out my VDSL connection on torrents at the moment 6.5MB/s on telecoms 500GB plan
Yup. I'm on a 80GB plan and I'm maxing out at ~1MB/s which is good for my mbps. Normal broadband plans with usage caps are not affected.
