I had the letter from telecom at start of OCT telling me to switch from go large to big time, cos its closing down

I was on go large and had recently been having problems with p2p speed, i thought it was cos go large was being closed down

So i thought switching to big time would address this issue

And on this monday, i was on the big time plan.

Now its even worse espically in peak times.

Currently, its peak and my p2p is screaming along at less than 10kB

YES all my ports and things to set up for p2p are done

Both Go Large and Big Time are traffic managed plans. This means usage such as P2P is throttled during peak hours and will be restricted.

If you want full speed P2P you will need to move to a plan that has no traffic shaping.

Go Large and Big Time are using the same traffic management rules and the same IP ranges (since Big Time came out a few months back).

The only differences are Go Large is limited to 128 kbit upload speed at the exchange port/profile where as Big Time is full speed aka whatever you can get given your distance from the exchange.

Also you can get interleaving turned off on Big Time which you couldn't on Go Large.
