Slow FTP Transfers

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone is experiencing the same problems I am?!

Basically http downloads seem fine with speeds of about 180KB/sec (not the fastest, but probs contention causing that) but my FTP downloads are absolutly rubbish!! So far i've hit ~30KB/sec from the Plus.Net webspace and less than 12KB/sec from my works FTP.

I need this working asap as a lot of my work revolves around this!!

This hasnt just happened today, its been doing it for over a week now.

anyone have any ideas whats going on?

Cheers.

A hardy perennial this one ... http://portal.plus.net/central/forums/viewtopic.php?t=48444

Perhaps one of us should raise a ticket and see if we can get an "official" answer once and for all?

Maybe we should all raise a ticket... then the odds on us getting a decent human reply might be greater.

Slow FTP Transfers

We are aware of some issues affecting FTP transfers at busy times.

We're currently testing some new software for our traffic management platform that should improve your speeds within the product design.

Hi Liam,

Any ideas to when this new design is going to be put in place? Even LISTING an FTP takes about 20 seconds... never mind trying to download anything from it!!

Anyone else from PlusNet willing to comment on this problem now?

When is this update for the ellacoya kit is getting installed?

Its not just FTP speeds which are terrible now, its my work e-mail client (FirstClass) as it doesnt use standard ports.

Please will someone sort this!! I cant stand <10KB/sec as it makes working from home impossible!!
