Download speed problem

Hi all,

I'm getting some really rubbish speeds from easynews.com over http (port 81) at less than 10KB/s. At the same time I'm getting over 300KB/s downloading an iso from Ubuntu. I spoke to plusnet about this as I thought they must in some way be restricting downloads from easynews.com over http. They say they aren't. So using the easynews traceroute facility I got the following:

HOST LOSS BEST AVG WORST
easynews.com 0% 0.49 13.07 85.04
puregig.net 0% 0.30 8.07 40.95
llnw.net 0% 0.47 2.34 9.21
llnw.net 0% 0.53 8.99 38.27
llnw.net 0% 0.76 13.85 53.41
gblx.net 0% 10.48 23.95 59.85
gblx.net 0% 19.47 25.40 60.06
gblx.net 0% 18.84 29.65 69.78
tiscali.net 20% 152.01 166.20 193.88
tiscali.net 0% 162.01 173.18 204.44
plus.net 0% 161.85 165.50 190.72
plus.net 0% 163.78 183.60 301.78
Huh 100% 0.00 0.00 0.00

I've abbreviated it so it fits. Can anyone help me and tell me if this shows any particular problems anywhere. I can see that the tiscali router is lossing a lot of packets but is this a problem? Could the slow response at the Plusnet routers be causing the problem?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

John
