I was just looking at Vodafones pages about the new data allowances when I shockingly saw that those outside the Red Network are limited to 128K upload!

My Internet connection has been slow this morning, I think this is why.

And I would have thought that with cabinetisation that there would be stuff all Red Network customers?

128K is PATHETIC, and what is the point of having fast download speeds (I can synch at 16MB down), talking about VDSL, then capping uploads to 128K!

I work at lot from home and VPN or remote into the office, and this will make a difference.  Plus of course Torrents will be badly affected (not that I am a huge downloader).

Any ideas?  The helpdesk know NOTHING about this.

Paul B, anything we should know of?

If this is the case I will be changing ISP's.

The wording does not look correct

Plans are FS/FS

I'm in the red zone, but am limited to 128K because of our plan. Doesn't make that much of a difference to me really, most of my content is download rather than upload. Most of the upload content is set and forget stuff that I don't actually care how long it takes anyway.

Yes, but having a 128k upload speed will limit your download to adsl1 speeds.

Wouldn't you know, the page has been changed!  So there are no plans to limit the uploads of those not on the Red Network?

Surely I wasn't the only one that noticed this?

That's something I wasn't aware of, I guess because our cap is only 5gig & it's what I have always had I just don't notice it.
