      Don't you just wish you had Virgin Broadband?

      VM have announced their traffic shaping plans, with customers being managed from using a mere 350mb (about 100 MP3's) Obviously they would like to give more customers to Sky.

      Traffic management

      Broadband Size: M - 2mb
      During peak times, the top 5% on the Size: M package download at least 350MB of traffic each.

      Any users hitting this amount during peak times (4pm till midnight) will have their broadband speed temporarily traffic managed their download speed will be set to 1Mb, with their upload speed set to 128Kb. This will last for 4 hours from when the traffic management policy is applied.

      Broadband Size: L (4mb)
      During peak times, the top 5% on the Size: L package download at least 750MB of traffic each.

      Any users hitting this amount during peak times (4pm till midnight) will have their broadband speed temporarily traffic managed their download speed will be set to 2Mb, with their upload speed set to 192Kb. This will last for 4 hours from when the traffic management policy is applied.

      Broadband Size: XL (20mb - old 10mb)
      During peak times, the top 5% on the Size: XL package download at least 3GB of traffic each.

      Any users hitting this amount during peak times (4pm till midnight) will have their broadband speed temporarily traffic managed their download speed will be set to 5Mb, with their upload speed set to 256Kb. This will last for 4 hours from when the traffic management policy is applied.
