FTP slow speeds

Hi I have been downloading off a ftp based in Sweden and get rubbish speeds ie between 25 an 50kb's any one else had this prob I put a ticket in about it asking if there was a routing prob and they said the wasn't did a ping test and they wre hi 60ms


I am on 2mb premier and speeds from other sites that are based in the uk are fine http down loads are ok as well

Hi,

It could be that there is currently a huge demand and a lot of people are downloading at the present moment. Alternatively it may also be that the FTP protocol is placed in the Silver band and is therefore throttled to a certqain limit somehwat.

As you may or may not already know PN are running the SUP now and are also throttling certain protocols in favor of others. This is to ensure the continuing speed of the most basic applications and that everyone using this service is able to enjoy their time online.
The way in which this works is that Http Https Plustalk etc are in the Gold band are high priority
Silverband = Medium priority and gives way to Gold
Bronze = Low priority and gives way to both Silver and Gold.

I've found that FTP from fast sites has mostly been good, but it seems to fluctuate all the time and not constant. I've not seen a site drop below the 160KB/s mark yet. Ideally would like to see 230KB/s+ constant, but the service simply doesnt allow this anymore, unless its quiet.

Although FTP is in the silver category we haven't actually dropped any silver traffic to date, so it's equivalent to gold.

If FTP is fine from one site and not another then that really suggests a problem with the first site or one of the transport links to it.

hmm got a long way to go till my contract is up then and I'll be out of here if thats the case there wasn't a mention on the ticket I got in reply about any of this

Gold band are high priority
Silverband = Medium priority and gives way to Gold
Bronze = Low priority and gives way to both Silver and Gold.

Silver gives priority to Gold if there isn't enough capacity after bronze has been dropped, but this has never yet happened.

I can understand that I just wanted to know if any one else who maybe on a se site has had the same prob.
