DO NOT USE THE ISP BT IF YOU WANT TO USE P2P APPLICATIONS (SUCH AS BITTORRENT) AS THESE ARE SEVERELY THROTTLED.

Slow speeds

bittorrent speeds in peektimes using the ISP BT

If you want to use BitTorrent during peak times expect speeds as bad as dial-up. In their Fair Usage Policy they do state that speeds will be reduced for P2P applications, however they don’t say about what exactly these speeds are. So, what would you expect these speeds to be exactly? Well the truth is as low as 2KB. (YES, this is no exaggeration. We are talking dial-up speeds here). It’s clear that BT only believe the internet is for web browsing and sending emails.
