02 and BitTorrent

I recently read that O2 are going to start restricting traffic for file sharers etc (evening peak time) but only for it’s NON-LLU service, it does make you think is this the start of them going down the same route as the dreaded BT and Virgin Media, it apparently is not going to affect BE customers yet, i hope not anyway as BE has always said they will never monitor shape or restrict their traffic and so far from my experience of they have kept to that.

They do say that the O2/BE customers will still get unrestricted broadband we shall see.

More details here at The Register and o2 traffic management
