I don't like Peak Time interfering with speeds during daylight hours. So this just makes it worse.
I generally don't like Peak Time interfering with casual usage.

If there was a good non-leecher pool (with max peak = non-peak) I'd join that, if it was separate network to the peak users.

I am such a novice that I barely understand the possible ramifications of your suggestion. However I feel quite warm and fuzzy when you ask us (your customer base) what we would prefer. Could you possible extend yourself to provide a few words on the pros and cons of doing nothing vs making this and other proposed changes?

BTW unlike Peter77 I'm pretty happy with your service, trust that you only raise prices when you must, and find that the spam filter is 98% effective. It would be nice if you were to (automatically?) review my ADSL Plan (say once per month) and let me know when another Plan would save me money.

Keep up the good work Exetel. So far I see no reason to switch ISPs.

Perhaps you should start another thread so your VOIP issue can be looked at (not wanting to take this thread off topic). I and many others use the VOIP service flawlessly. It is often a configuration issue not necessarily the 'VOIP Service'

Just noticed the admin comments.
If you could put in place a user choice system through our web account manager, this would satisfy all and posible spread the traffic more evenly.

No please keep it as it is.

Maybe even change it from 10pm-10am.

That would be good.

My problems with voip, are bandwidth-traffic issues, not configuration- It works perfectly some times and not at specific other times.

I think you will find that if the traffic and bandwidth are effected by the off peak download changes the reliability of voip hours will also be effected.

Do not change it. Keep it starting at 12pm. In fact, start it earlier 11pm.

For me, I need to wait till midnight to start my podcast downloading. I download sometimes a few hundred podcasts a day. My podcast collection is like a massive library.

If you change the start time for offpeak, are you expecting me to stay awake at 2am to start the downloading?

Terrible idea. Leave it 12-12, no one is up at 2am to take advantage of that idea. A better idea would be to move it to 10-10 :mrgreen:

I would be very much in favour of this, it would be very beneficial for me.
