iPlayer desktop download throttled?
I have been downloading two programs on the BBC iPlayer desktop since around 7 a.m. this morning. It is taking much longer than usual because neither will download faster than 1 Mbps. If I pause one download the speed of the other does not increase as it normally does. My Plusnet "current line speed" is 6 Mbps so I should be able to download a lot faster and always have done in the past. It looks as if some kind of throttle is being applied that did not apply previously.
Re: iPlayer desktop download throttled?
I've just been checking with our traffic management guru and there isn't a rate limit applied on this type of traffic at that time in the morning. Can you let us know if this happens again so we can do some more digging and see what's going on.
