The reduction is to 25%,
The day period is 10am to 3pm
The evening is 3pm to 10pm
This is EXACTLY the srt of problem I was mentioning
3GB is NOTHING these days if you want to start watching HD movies etc etc directly from the Internet -- which is easy to do with decent fast download speeds -- 3GB is about 60 mins of movie !!!!!
As I said before it's POINTLESS if they start capping or reducing speed -- as I mentioned before --you'll reach your monthly limit in say 2 days instead of 22.
This mega fast stuff only makes sense if they will provide you with essentially an unlimited service -- otherwise a bog standard 6GB is fine.
