    Why does O2 need to manage traffic on the Access package for O2 Home Broadband?

    • Answer
    • Our broadband network gets clogged up at rush hours, just like real roads. A lot of that congestion comes from people downloading large files (movies, TV shows and music) and using peer to peer programs and newsgroup services.

       

      This makes it slower for other people to do things like email, look at websites, watch things on BBC iPlayer and YouTube or use programs like Skype or Messenger.

       

      All we're doing is encouraging people to download large files and use peer to peer programs and newsgroups when there's less traffic, to help our broadband flow better.
