Re: @Rampant Spaniel

VirginMedia have two policies:

1. File Sharing Traffic Management: all file sharing is capped at ~75% line speed during peak hours, regardless of how much you used

2. Subscriber Traffic Management: If you go over the threshold, you will be capped at 50% of your line speed. All traffic counts towards this, and all traffic is affected by it http://www.virginmedia.com/images/STM30MblargeA.jpg

Usenet!

Have you tried posting on their virginmedia.support.broadband.cable (assuming you're on cable) newgroup? The tech support people who work there actually know what they're doing.

Unthrottled service

An unthrottled service, you say? Why, you must surely mean their 50Mb package which comes without any limits whatsoever?

As for maxing out your Be connection 24/7...

"If it’s felt that any Be member’s Internet activities are so excessive that other members are detrimentally affected, Be may give the member generating the excessive web traffic a written warning (by email or otherwise). In extreme circumstances, should the levels of activity not immediately decrease after the warning, Be may terminate that member’s services."

Nice.
