Its apparantly a fault mate.

My P2p and ftp was terrible, but they seem to have fixed it for me now.

Not sure if its a global fix or a personal fix tho as I have had no reply from PN.

Things should get back to normal (slow speeds in the day but Okish at night) once its sorted, or so I belive.

Hi,

Which accounts are you each on? The ports aren't blocked but on Broadband Plus P2P traffic is at the lowest priority on our network. We also have a problem at the moment with the traffic management on the network, more details have been posted to service status:

Hi, we absolutely are not blocking P2P ports. There are issues with the traffic management platform at the moment, but we have made a lot of progress in understanding the issues this week. There will be more info coming out before the weekend with the specifics of what we are doing to fix things.

to be fair, blocking P2P usage would be an awesome idea, would remove all the lame warez kids from the ISP and maybe allow those that actually want a good connection to have one, without them taking all the damn bandwidth.

hooza for P2P being broken!!

Along with P2P goes the external FTPs.

Some of us actually need external FTP for things other than the latest video card drivers, or warez.

Actually, blocking just P2P for BB+ users only would probably mean that enough bandwidth was released to make everything else much better - including ftp for BB+ users.

You know that my computer game patches are P2P too right? What about my freebsd iso's?

I'm sorry, but more and more legit stuff is P2P now, not just warez.

I'm sure freebsd is available on ftp, are the patches not also?

I would have thought ftp was a more efficient protocol - certainly from the ISP's point of view it doesn't carry an upload as well as download implication.
