      well, I managed to get on yesterday which was a surprise, and it appears to be playing ball, but they've throttled my speed back to 800kbps despite not d/ling anything today.
      requested MAC on tuesday but haven't received it yet.

      the throttle isn't a one off...it'll monitor for the next week and if it sees usage go down it'll remove the cap...

      But what are your pings like over a sustained period as this is the main concern for gamers, capacity anywhere in the network will affect this.

      There have been times when many on here would happily throttle you

      I know, I was just pointing out I've not been hit for a good few months now - probably as I don't game or download HUGE files on my home connection...
