Memo to self: when my ISP (Netspace) shapes after hitting the monthly download limit, they do not automatically unshape at the end of the billing period. You just have to disconnect and re-connect to get the proper speed back. Annoyingly, this information is nowhere to be found in their online help.
(It’s never happened to me before, which is why I didn’t know.)
Woah – that sucks! How is it that no one has screamed about that previously?
With my previous ISP it just automatically jumped back up – within minutes of ticking over midnight on my billing date…
Happily, I left a comment with their support people, and they’ve added this to their online help.
