That's 12.7KB/s not Kb/s-- lousy I agree but still about twice dialup speed! Wink

Why am I getting 12kbps?

In no particular order, could be ANY of:

Contention
Traffic Shaping based on general network usage
Traffic Shaping based on level 1/2/3 usage limits
PNet Capactiy
Mozilla Server Capacity
MaxDSL speed problems
Line Problems
Exchange Problems

and a few other choices Smiley

And if you had 12KB/Sec on dialup.... wow.

Yeah yeah Kilobits and Kilobytes Smiley

My bad!

Also, my average dialup speed with ntl was ~20Kbps, until it got crappy and disconnected me Sad

Do plusnet specifically throttle ftp connections? I have had many an occasion, even before DSLMax, where an ftp download has a truly awful speed, 20K or so, whilst other types of download seem perfectly happy to run at my usual data rate (previously 118K now 234K).

12KB - wow. I hanker after the days when I could get a whole 12KB out of a usenet or p2p connection.
