Speed problems - Which account do you use?

Premier Option 1.

Frequent disconnections. Cannot attempt usenet after 11 am and my gaming ping sucks. I would have posted this earlier but I just had another disconnection Sad

It is only apathy that keeps me here. When I can be bothered to get off my lazy butt I will be heading over to Zen.

Premier 1 here.

Currently downloading at 7721 B/s from Easynews.

Yes, that's bytes, not kilobytes.

Premier 1

IRC file transfer: lucky to see 1KB/sec at anything except 3-4am. frequent time-outs. 25%+ of packets get dropped by PN. virtually unusable.

P2P: lucky to see anything above 20KB/sec at any time of the day. right now: 13.7KB/sec

HTTP: Ok except in peak time when can slow considerably.

Non-PN FTP: much improved. only took 6 months to fix. haha.

Email: don't know as use an alternate provider after they deleted all the emails.

P2P speeds drop out about 2-3:00pm and stay non existent through till a few hours after the midnight (supposed) cut-off. Not too bad otherwise.

HTTP: Generally slow when I'm awake and want to surf, quick when I'm supposed to be asleep!

don"t use NG but use BT and get okay speeds depending on seeds Irc haven't used much but as long as server is near good speeds.

On BB+ upto 8Mb
Less than half a mile from exchange, was down to 52Kbps last week, down again this afternoon to about 240kbps.
Why is it taking so long to find out why, it all seemed to start at the middle of last week for me.

Prem 1.
Download speeds from sites can reach 230kb/s
P2P speeds on average 2-5kb/s during peak, possibly between 100-150kb/s early in the morning (7am) especially when many seeders.
BUT connection is down frequently. Switching off/on the router in 90% of cases solves the problem but connection can't be stable more than 1 hour!

I think you should have asked which connection method at the exchange is used also - LLU or IP Stream as that has been a contentious Cheesy issue for a looong time.
