Low user being throttled?

Have a look at this graph......
The full graph represents my 2Mb connection.
The blocks show downloading of files from different locations.

Looks like someone has put a limit on my account! I cannot download at more than 140KB/s.

Lucky i'm leaving next week.

Low user being throttled?

The only way to check if its an equitpment or a contention problem is to use the BT speed check as described here.

Also, don't forget that just because it is possible to download at 2Mb (~215k/s max) it doesn't mean you always will. There may be routing problems, latency issues in the intermediate connections and the server you are downloading from may itself be limiting the speed at which it lets you download from.

Thanks for your reply.

It is not a contention issue (checked) and I am aware of the issues of latency etc etc.

I just find it very strange to see such a firm limit on my download speed. It looks as though a level has been set.

It must be because I am such a high user and suck the system dry ! :shock:

Total for this month = 4.5GB and I only have 3 days left of the month.
