BT takes away speed restrictions on unlimited broadband packages

BT customers who currently use its unlimited broadband packages will not be subject to fair usage policy (FUP) from next month, the broadband provider has announced today.

The internet provider currently applies speed restrictions on its uncapped services like BT Total broadband Option 3 and 40Mbps BT Infinity Option 2, when the usage exceeds 300GB.

The removal of fair use controls means BT customers on these packages can download as much data as they wish.

“As BT continues to invest in the network and network bandwidth we can now remove these restrictions and ensure the experience of the wider customer base,” said Mayuresh Thavapalan, General Manager, Consumer broadband division, BT Retail.

“On completion there will be no individual user controls targeted at atypical users on our BT Total Broadband and BT Infinity products.” he added.

However, BT said it will continue to manage the excess traffic during peak hours, by restricting users P2P (peer to peer) access.
