Whats the difference between Unlimited one and Unlimited Plus? the slingshot website doesn't say much but it looks like Unlimited One is p2p limited.

Yup looks like you need to pay $10 more to avoid p2p shaping

This is what it says when you click on the plan.

P2P is heavily throttled on this plan. Perfect for those who want Unlimited media and surfing without the P2P downloads!

That's great -- if P2P is defined sensibly.  Last time I was a slingshot unlimited customer, they shaped SSH (and therefore rsync) because it was "P2P".  Not so great if you're trying to backup your Linux PC.

I hope they're not counting FTP in this shaping policy...

If you don't want it shaped, pay $10 more for the Unlimited Plus plan. At $109 for home line and unlimited broadband (Plus), it's a very very competitive price. Even more so if you get the $99 Unlimited One plan (throttled P2P) including home line.

Still wish they'd get on it and provide VDSL.
