I was thinking this was the double speed upgrade so not sure if that is included?
Hmmm, I am on "shep-cmts-11" I think?! The tools site states "cpc16-shep11-2-0-custxxx.8-3.cable.virginmedia.com"

Yet I am still on 10mb and have not had the free speed upgrade, how does the new STM effect me?

Re: Traffic Management Changes - April 2nd

the STM is not the same time as the speed upgrade.

I am off on Wednesday so I'll give it a good blast between 1500-1600. I should be able to download 40gb easily in an hour and I'll see if stm kicks in.

No, but why shy away from saying so when you know you're right about something I am, of course, as quick to admit to being wrong when I am

"quick" - are you using VMs definition?

Fair enough, Craig. It's difficult to tell sometimes

The list is longer and i am sure others could add to that

When you have a family who use the above ALL the time STM becomes the biggest pain in the arse of any ISP



So what is this normal activity you talk about
I find all this very confusing. So if I watch tv programmes on my pc then at some time STM might kick in and slow down my connection? I assume this doesn't apply if I watch catch-up tv?
My son plays COD on his PS3 online. Would anyone be able to give me any idea of how much traffic this would involve and how long he could play before speed was affected? If he is playing online while I watch a tv programme on my pc will we hit limits sooner?

Yes.

Via VM's TV service? No.

Can't answer your other question. I'm sure someone will though

Re: Traffic Management Changes - April 2nd

I don't think game playing transfers huge amounts of data does it? All the dawing of landscapes is handled by the machine locally, it's only data relating to changes of position of objects and activities that are transmitted.

At least, that's what I would assume.

I'm starting to get really irritated by the STM now. Anyone know if it's possible to get an exact date of when the doubling will happen in an area and when the switch to the new STM limits will happen?

I assume the only way is to keep checking on the VM forums for updates.

playing games online uses a mostly neglegible amount of traffic, to the point that its not worth worrying about; I would guess at most 100mb per hour.
