The tightened regime means that between 10am and 3pm subscribers to its "M", "L" and "XL" packages will have their connection throttled for five hours if they download more than their full speed ration.
if they're doing it to everyone I agree with your point but the article says it's only doing it to people that are taking more then their rationwrong: they are doing it to all, we dont pay by the gig, we pay a set amount each month for what they say is an unlimited connection, but how is it unlimited if they say d/l xxx amount and we will reduce your speed by 75%
and as i have said they are doing this in a round about way with the connections, pay for 50meg, no limits no throttling, but pay less and you get limits and throttled.
And the ration they say is a "limit" they have imposed, when i first signed up i didnt sign a contract that stated anything about limits, as they said it was unlimited and i could download as much as i like, since virgin took over service is crap, speed at the best of times even when you haven't downloaded your quota for the day is rubbish, they are getting rid of tech support, in general what was once a good ISP under blueyonder, is now a joke under Virgin media
