Business Broadband Slow speeds

Now, I am not one to complain, but I am logged in to my PC at home from work, downloading a Linux ISO, Ubuntu Dapper Flight 1 CD actually.....

Now, at first i was getting 243KB/sec then its gone all the way down to 86KB/sec

I have tried other places to download it but all ar the same, im sure +net would not throttle http downloads on a business product would they?

Am I missing something or being parionoid, might just be reading too many+net fourm posts :roll:

Hi,

There shouldn't be anything causing your http transfers to slow down like that. I'd suggest you check your exchange on the Exchange Checker as its possible that there's currently an issue with contention in your exchange, which would cause slowdowns at peak times.

I think you may be being paranoid. Are you using P2P or HTTP download?

Our business connection is performing fine today.

that's baad, VP's at red means that there are lots of users fighting over capacity to get out of the exchange and hence can slow the connection down...

Would be worth noting this is something only BT can fix and is nothing to do with Plusnet.

It would be the same whatever ISP you were with.

Traffic congestion in Greater London? Who'd have thought it? Wink

According to the exchange details page BT were supposed to investigate this exchange on 17/11/05, but there is no way to know if they have until BT update PlusNet with the details.
