For the 16MB Max Package, does anyone know if Sky like it better if you do bulk downloads during the night (off peak times - ie 12am till 6am).
If i have a set of large download i usually set them off downloading through the night.
I know alot of other ISP's used to prefer this,just wondering if Sky also prefer it this way.
Im not a heavy downloader - any large downloads i do i set them up through the night (the last week some patches and mods/addons etc for some PC games, and the xbox 360 downloading demos from xbox live overnight - but they did add up to quite a bit)

Re: Download times
I've heard of traffic shaping but never heard times mentioned, but it's good policy on your part.
In the bad old days of dial up, to get tolerable speeds I used to try to schedule file downloading to times when I reckoned America had gone to bed but Europe wasn't up yet -- though that's probably outdated now most of the world is on the net.
