When you downgraded to 45/4, did you find your speeds slower.
Yes and no.
Yes, when downloading something large with multiple connections (ie an episode of TV I missed from a usenet provider with 20 connections), it's slower (Ultimate would download at 9+MB/s, Express at "only" 5+MB/s).
But not noticeably in any other way. Web surfing is still the same, 45mbit is still much more than necessary for streaming video so it's also the same, etc.
And most importantly, it's MUCH faster when I connect to my Home PC from Work. There was about a week of "bumpiness" where I found it necessary to change the RDP ports every day (was REALLY slow otherwise for some reason), but this has stopped and I think may have been related to the throttle being disabled in my area (since the problem disappeared the same time that the throttling ended).
