I've noticed something like that, torrents go full speed off peak (1.7MB/s) but now they are sitting at around 120KB/s

What plans are you guys on? Is CallPlus listed as a seeder during these high periods?
Remember, P2P content is their LOWEST priority, so normal people can watch their cat videos in 1080p.

I don't really mind it so much, it just means there has to be a little off-peak download planning :)

Great thing about xDSL internet access in NZ is that you have a choice and changing ISP's is a simple phone call away.

Unless you're on a BUBA connection there is no reason to be suffering with poor internet speeds when the fix is so simple.
