Re: [ALL] Ask a Shaw Rep

Hi, I was just wondering if there was some sort of system put in place where if you're the one in your area that is congesting the network, then you'll be capped at a certain speed for awhile until congestion is over.

Because yesterday I've downloaded much more than I usually do in a day (about 15 GB more) and now some specific applications that I use are going at 70KB/s while others have 'OK' speeds of about 500KB/s. And whenever I do decide to download something it goes at about 1.8MB/s.

If this system is in place: how long do I have to wait until this speed cap is removed?

Basically, no.

Downloads will not be shaped.

Uploads can be for non-time-sensitive stuff (however sometimes the system has different opinions what non-time-sensitive traffic is).
