What doesn't really make sense here if they are worried about network congestion wouldn't they filter between the hours of 9-5 to ensure no issues? Why would they filter after work hours which is something that is really strange.
Not so strange at all.
Bell's throttling preceded (more or less) the opening of their own on-demand video store. The throttle hours are 4pm - 2am, which corresponds to peak video watching time.
This is the problem with a combined common carrier and value-added provider.
