why are usenet speeds slow?

I'm download from external newsgroups at a whopping 100k and its off peak time.

howay plusnet what the hell is going on?

I've noticed lately that speeds have really started to drop. I've done speed tests and I'm getting around 5mbps, so are you throttling usenet?

I've spoke to a friend on another exchange and he is experiencing the same issue.

Hi there,

I'm imagine that this is related to the P2P/Torrent problem which I've documented in the other thread.

james, I can assure you it's not just a P2P/Torrent issue, look at my speed tests for today.

Are those all HTTP speed tests? Do BT Speedtests give similar results at the same times?

sorry its taken so long to reply, my internet is hardly usable, everything is taking ages to load.

it's done on the plusnet speed test, I've just tried adsl guide and it's showing similar results around 67kbps.

I'll try a bt test if I can get the page to load.

There is clearly a MAJOR issue here as a friend of mine is having exacly the same problem and he's no on LLU and he is on a different exchange.

I should be able to give you a report on the BT speed test around about 10:15am on the 8th October 2009.....that's when it's looking like it'll be complete.

If the BT speed test is only showing 25K per second, then it's not PN at fault, but somewhere before that - possibly the exchange. Have you checked the VP capacity at your exchange whilst the slowness was there?

I'm on tiscali so I'm not sure checking the exchange status would show much would it?
