Shaping and throttling

Throttling is the purposeful slowing down of an Internet service by an ISP. It is a measure to regulate network traffic and minimize bandwidth congestion. By actively limiting a user's upload and download rates on platforms such as video streaming, BitTorrent protocols and other file sharing applications, it is possible to balance out the usage of the total bandwidth supplied across all users on the network thereby ensuring all users have access to bandwidth when they need it.

Shaping is used to optimise the use of the MWEB network, by shaping traffic according to importance. This is done by giving certain protocols preference over others by prioritising it so we shape in favor of Gaming and media streaming on our Connect ADSL products by default.

Limitations
