BBC Live Video

If you go to the BBC website and watch the sport on it's live player the connection speed is 226kb.
If you come to the PLusnet portal the speed is.................. 226kb
As my connection speed is 2000kb (2MB).
Why come to the plusnet portal?
Why is there not a better connection speed?

BBC Live Video

Video and music streaming are encoded at a particulat bit-rate which is independant of your physical connection speed.

So if it's encoded at 128Kbs then that is the trabsfer speed you will see whether your connection is 512K, 2Mbs or 8Mbs.

I suspect the video stream in your case in encoded at 226Kbs and you will not get it any faster than that.
