it is mad m8, ""the more people they get the slower speeds at peaktime" considering they are already cutting the speeds.

i was on aol years ago m8, and they made me think there was a fault my end rather than admit they were oversubscribed at peak times {£30 a month they were robbing off me for less than 1mb}

They are cutting speeds?

Never heard of this before, or are you talking about their traffic shaping?

so the speed is fine, they are just preventing you from using bitorrent as fast as you are used to?

Sorry, VM are actively telling you that you have downloaded too much from the internet and have cut you off?

What is the limit on your FUP?

afaik, VM dont actively disconnect any users for going beyond their download allocation. They are simply speed reduced by upto 75%.

If you are a persistant heavy user that constantly goes over allocation then you may receive a warning letter regarding conduct but that is quite rare.
