I'm being throttled?

Hi,

Many people are reporting slow speeds with usenet at present. Dave Tomlinson, from the Comms Team posted in the feedback forum that they are aware of this issue and are looking into it.

An announcement about usenet is expected this week.

Hopefully that will improve the situation.

I'm being throttled?

I came to plusnet because I'm a heavy usenet user, I get lots of japanese stuff due to my business in the UK, I'm gathering that my usenet is now running like a dog(15k) due to the fact my connection is being throttled.

however I have not recieved a warning email?

Hi there,

Welcome to the forums.

Many people are at present reporting speed issues with usenet.

Plus Net are aware of the issue and are looking into it.

There's a fairly langthy thread running in the customer feedback forum should you wish to read it.

To the best of my knowledge Plus Net will be making an announcement on this during the week.

Keep an eye on the feedback forum for updates.

Plusnet place usenet traffic in the 'Bronze' que, i.e. last in line.

To obtain decent usenet speeds you need a news server that supports multiple (12 to 16) connections.

Otherwise....

it seems spooky to me I've gone from a constant 220k to 15k, with 4 connections.

I've used usenetserver for years now and have always ran at maximum speed.

they are having no issues, and also my plusnet usenet is now slow.

My usenet speeds were going pretty fast until a few hours ago when they are now slower than 56kbps - Ive only had broadband for 3 days, so I hope this gets fixed soon Smiley
