Re: Throttling again - this isn't good enough

Jim,
What product are you on?  I doubt I can be of much help as there are others here far more up to date with any changes or tweaks that PN have made recently, I am just trying to gather as much information on other peoples speed issues as possible as it may help me identify a pattern which could include my own.  I have been getting line speed at any time of the day up until recently when it dropped like a brick. to around 90%-80% at peak, and only 70% at best off peak.
Has yours changed recently too?

Jim,
What URL are you actualyl using - the one on Softpedia I can see links me to an external FTP site?

Jim,
Have you got slowdowns on anything else or just this download? And have you tried switching to a different gateway as we had a couple of drops yesterday which could be causing some slowdowns on a few of the gateways.
