Good Day

Shaping is applied to all users in general not based on usage thresholds, and the impact to non-priority services is determined by the level of demand and available network capacity. Shaping is applied only when demand on the network exceeds available network capacity and relieved when demand decreases. You were probably shaped as a result of network congestion.
