Some ISPs employ traffic management as a fair usage policy which can result in cut broadband speeds at certain times of the day. Troubles a brewing?
In the UK Virgin Media uses traffic management and those who use over 7GB of data between 10am and 3pm, or 3.5GB between 4pm and 9pm see their Internet speed throttled by 75 percent to just 5GB for five hours if your subscribe to their 20GB package.
Those who pay for Virgin Media's more expensive 50GB broadband however are not subject to a fair usage policy and so can download and upload without imposed limits. BT, OnLive's UK partner, offers an Unlimited OnLive option for British consumers.
Are ISP throttling measures going to bruise cloud gaming?
