See "Big UK ISPs Detail New Voluntary Code on Broadband Traffic Management", by , here.
"Most of the largest internet providers use Traffic Management to balance the performance of their network between heavy and lite users, thus avoiding network congestion. This is usually done by restricting traffic (i.e. speed) to busy services, such as P2P (BitTorrent File Sharing), or more generally at peak times of day. The result is that everybody should receive a fair internet speed".
