      So now would be a good time to play you at TF2
      Seriously, problems seem to be escalating massively on Connect this week.
      I wouldnt have thought the traffic shaping should effect gaming as much as it seems to be doing.

      I wouldn't be at all surprised if BT are reducing bandwidth to keep their own customers happy - if anyone has the option of LLU, no matter who the ISP is, it has to be better than this is they need it good for gaming...

      I make do as browsing is still fine, and I download during the day instead to make the most of full bandwidth, but I can see the annoyance - especially as it's a recent change...

      It would be interesting to see if there are similar complaints on BT's forums, I suspect not.
