Where are your speeds being affected? In general web browsing or just your (what I assume used your 44GB) P2P traffic?

This & This may shed some light.

Thanks mate its just my web browsing speed seems to have taken a hit I guess its because of my overuse of P2P applications fair enough i guess but would be nice if they had contacted me about it (like they say they would) so I could have adjusted my usage before speed cutback - Cheers for the info

44Gig in less than a month, and we wonder why they see a reason to impose some limits. Poor other users on you DSLAM, guess they see an improvement now.

Maybe its just me, but 44G is what I might concider was a heavy year.
