Hi im on the telecom big time plan and ive been noticing something strange.. My speed. Now before anyone makes that obvious reply of "telecom manages traffic so slow speeds are expected, especially over p2p" blah blah; im not experiencing that, and thats the weird thing. 
It appears my traffic, speed etc is not being managed, in uTorrent im actually getting speeds up to 1.7mb/s (my max connection speed). Is anyone else on Big Time experiencing this?

You might be downloading from local peers and local traffic is not managed...

Probably a low demand on the network hence speeding up bigtime

I think it is automatic, As the network demand goes up the more shaping that happens to bigtime
