Has anyone else noticed a general slow down in speed over the last week through their slingshot connection?

On the off peak especially I can be downloading something and it will sit around 100-150kB from 1am to 6am where as it used to gradually speed up over time and get up around 500kB from 4am after to 6am. 


Current typical 1-6am speeds


Previous typical 1-6am speeds:

I was talking with a friend who has adsl2+ and he pointed out this week, " :( after Slingshot's new bandwidth was added they decided to start capping https traffic just like all the rest :( "

What software did you use to measure the usage? (Completely unrelated, just curious =P)

I use Kerio Winroute Firewall.
Its a routing software that runs on windows xp. I use it because I look after some student flats and it allows me to keep track of bandwidth usage so they can be charged their share of the bill - and it has a 2gB cache so it speeds up surfing.
