Does showbox stream ok on EE fibre Plus

Hi everyone, I've just signed up for EE fibre plus to take over my Sky Fibre service. My question is, does showbox stream without problem on EE? I'm asking because of the shady traffic management policy that EE operates. If anybody could let me know that would be great, thanks.

Re: Does showbox stream ok on EE fibre Plus

There are diff TM policies for diff BB products. The 1 with peak time throttling is for "Off-Net" ADSL BB. There is no throttling for Fibre BB.

 

Unfortunately the link to EE's TM policies is broken at the mo' ( @TiffJ: can someone fix the link on Broadband, Home Phone & EE TV terms & conditions to EE Broadband Traffic & Network management ?).

 

However Google provides this for the Fibre etc. TM : Section 1: Traffic management in relation to your broadband .

 

N.B. EE no longer block Port 25 SMTP over the EE BB network, as a spin-off from the email closure,

What TM policy? There is no TM on Fibre?

Re: Does showbox stream ok on EE fibre Plus

 if that's true then great. It's just I can't seem to find any up to date and accurate information regarding the traffic management policy. I found one document that said it was unlimited with no traffic management but then in another section it said there were restrictions on certain types of data?? It also said that traffic would be slow down in peak hours?? Is this for a different product or is it on fibre? And back to my first question, does showbox run without any problems on EE fibre?

Re: Does showbox stream ok on EE fibre Plus

Cool, thanks for the info. So to be clear....is EE fibre truly unlimited in the same way that Sky Fibre is truly unlimited? No throttling, no blocking, no slow downs etc?
