I still think they need to put an upper limit on the Bigtime plan, say 250Gb cap, you go over you get slowed to 56K at least that would stop half the plan raping that's going on. Especially if those 3Tb downloads are correct.

I bet their methods ain't working for them right about now ;-) Also, to get around the traffic management system, you'd need to be pretty technically advanced, I would say!


The 200 page thread on gpforums with 20 new pages about bypassing the new http shaping in the last 2 days says otherwise.

I've seen the work around and it's fairly trivial for anyone half tech savvy, no I'm not using it and no I won't give it to you.

Hmmm... Then telecom would run into false advertisment claims like they did with Go Large - Unlimited is unlimited.

I do NOT agree with the people who are somehow gettnig 3TB etc out of BT - how the hell they're doing it I don't know!

You must be careful with these forums, there are a lot of tech-geeks trolling them, and most of the time they're full of it (in terms of what they're doing on the net etc).
I've seen how easy it is to alter an image like download speed etc with the use of photoshop or other professional photo-editing software.
Someone showed me an image of how 'fast their Big Time downloads were going'..., it was quite simply ridiculously fake!

Where did 3TB come from... I mentioned 1-1.5TB because I know there are guys doing that sort of traffic however that's that's pretty extreme.

However you guys appear to have just inflated what I said to 3TB based on "Chinese whispers" with no actual basis in reality...

200 page thread with 20 new pages about bypassing the "new http shaping"?? It's NOT new http shaping, it's a technical fault!

it can still be unlimited @ 56k, just state its unlimited but once you reach 250Gb, your speed is locked out at 56k until the end of the billing cycle. you can still download whatever you can, but at 56k

They would still run into trouble - fine-print stuff you know? They tried it once before with another (nameless) plan, but ended up changing it's terms and conditions severely.

Sorry but you are incorrect. 

No set of DPI based traffic management rules are perfect.
