BBCi Broadband - speed problems

When watching video off the BBCi site the connection speed is often slow leading to numerous breaks while communicating.

I get good connection speeds when using speed testers - approx 450 kps and as BBCi only 256kbps would have thought I should have no problems.

Is this a Plusnet issue or a fundamental problem with the BBCi site?

BBCi Broadband - speed problems

Hi there,

I would think it is unlikely to be a fault this end as we peer directly with the BBC over LINX. Are you doing anything else on your connection at the same time you are viewing the content?

Can be the Real player your using, if like me your using an old spyware free real player then it will be slow, but from what I hear the most recent is faster in general
