I believe it's Plusnet's traffic management, also known as throttling.

I see it all the time where downloads, P2P etc start off full speed, get throttled to zero, pick up, get throttled etc.

They're still tuning the throttling kit and hopefully will get it right before too long.

See threads throughout here for more detail. You are not alone.

Hi there

Have a look at my thread:-
Has Something Happen To Plusnets Premier Account?

I'm not pleased, either with what has been happening Cry

I just hit 35kbs but back down to 15 now,good while it lasted tho' Tongue

Not funny really cos there's enough sources to go loads faster.
Its not pleasant being throttled to death.............can't breathe!!!!!

Edit
oh yeah I'd like to know why we weren't emailed info about changes too.
