Re: [TWC] TW Officially Announces Packet Shaping for All RR User

7:30pm and downloading from NG server at 1180KB/sec. This shaping technology doesn't seem to have hit my area yet.
That is possible, although remember this is in effect only during "peak times" whatever that means (and if someone can get them to confirm what those times actually are, that would be useful to know.)

Apparently so in the St. Cloud area at least. See the link above to a post from a user who got telephone confirmation from Bright House in central Florida.

Peak times means you'll only see the traffic shaping when the network traffic is so heavy as to require it. If you're in a cable system that never sees very heavy traffic like the one I'm in (I never see slow downs, ever) you will likely never see it. If you have slow downs in the evening then you will like get caught up in traffic shaping.
