hello all, happy to be a member!
I recently moved to virginmedia cable, 20mb line from BT ADSL (UK)
have been great up until past couple of months, when downloading posts via grabit or alt.binz, will initially get 16-18mb which will then progressively slow down to 40KB/s!!!
This is compared to the 22mb I was getting before which would be chopped to 500KB/s in the evening if I was downloading too much which was fine.
I am with newsdemon and have tried all ports, including the encrypted ones being 563, 80 and 81 (119, 443 and 8080 standard) - same problem, get close to full pelt at first then slows right down to 20-40KB/s
Is this virgin's doing and if yes is there a way around it?
