More usenet speed problems

Using Giganews - around 4.00pm speeds about 200kB/s then around 4.30 they plummited to less than 5kB/s. still the same now
I'm not on any traffic shaping, my new account period started yesterday and I've only used around 200Mb on a premier 2mb/s account

Also easynews via the web has crawled to a hault., was downloading at about 170 kB/sec and now nothing.
Been active since sunday and already considering leaving Sad
Never had these types of problems with Nildram/NTL/Bulldog etc.

Was just about to post a support query but speeds suddenly increased. Will someone from plus please let us know what you are doing or did you just refuel the hamsters.

I've just posted a service status regarding this, as it appears there was an issue that was causing general slowdowns and some connection issues. Though this has now been resolved which is why you saw the speed increas again.

link seems really erratic to be honest going from 60 kB/sec > 140 kB/sec
Suppose its better than 0 kB/sec.

It's going to be erratic during peak time, bandwidth intensive protocols are restricted while latency sensitive applications (web browsing, gaming, VoIP, etc) are given priority. This is no bad thing IMHO (assuming it works, but recently is hasn't been). You won't always get full line speed for bandwidth intensive stuff, especially not during Peak Time.

Hmm, yes, header retrieval from PlusNet's server approx 15-20kb/s on thn-ag1. Possibly 'normal' peak time prioritisation. Or that half of those on ptn-ag1 have been moved over to the other pipes.. or.. something else!

still, felt good to have a mini rant.
