    The owner of Evolution seems to have let the cat out of the bag at last:

    and:
    So according to them, everything is unlimited, and there is no traffic shaping.. it's just that if you download too much you'll have minimum priority and you WILL be throttled..
    Is it me or is that traffic shaping? :confused:
    This morning I started downloading at around 8:30am, was getting around 300k/s, then bang on 9am it dropped to a very consistent 90k/s, then 5mins later 60k/s, and 5mins after that 30k/s. Now it's pretty much dead..

    Still praying that my MAC code will arrive any day now :rolleyes:

    lol everyone warned though it would go down the pan. Get a decent ISP like nildram or Zen.

    Uncapped 8mb at £24.99, was just a matter of when.

    Over at adslguide, the odd person is still getting good speeds, however the majority are getting speeds similar to you

    sounds like some sort of dynamic traffic shaping which depends on network loads of different traffic levels and/or times of day.....

    interesting.
