The download thing is simple, I think they likely have either
1. Auto speed reduction, full line speed for XX seconds.
2. Or content sniffing.
Since 2. Will not work with everything they probably do the quick and dirty 1. and port priority shapping.. hope they allowed Voip, email and IM tho it might be harder determining that vs file p2p IM uses.

Interesting moves ahead of the Afrihost relaunch today.

Wonder if they beat them again to the punch like with the uncapped options Afrihost launched earlier this year?

This is perfect for stopping Adam to beat Thabo to death, because their cap is gone...

This is awesome. Just want to know if you will be able to download pdfs, I guess it will be able just slowed down, but that doesn't matter. This will be good for a number of students that have to do research the whole time.

I signed up for this account and so far I am happy :)
Torrents are downloading at a max speed of 31 KB/s on my 384 line.
It looks like you can have either one of two things but not both.
1.Surf the Internet as much as you like
2.Download 2 Torrent files ( max speed of 20 KB/s)

Thats my experience so far. But for R99 a month it's really worth it.

I just cancelled my R19 pm axxess lite account. No more topups!

Will you still be happy with that when they really shape p2p?

Finally a browsing account with a little downloading - and no worries about caps, awesome!

Gamers/downloaders have plenty of other options so they can go there. This is clearly not meant for them.
