Thread: Speed is capped newsgroup direct 100kb/s???

  1. #1
    Anyone have this problem. I am on an unlimited plan. But all of a sudden my speed is stuck at 100kb/s.

    My connection is 15MB and I can stll get full speed from torrents so its not me.

    Anyone know if they limit your speed if you download too much. I hope this is just an error or I will have to leave.

    Opened a support ticket but thought maybe someone here had noticed this before.

    Tried all the servers, 50 connections. With 50 I can get 200kb/s. Also tried a different reader, wtf this sucks. I guess I just wait until they get back to me.

    Well they are highwinds and I think they are related to newsdemon so i it would not surprise me! I think newsdemon also caps.... the million dolar question is how much did you download in this billing period? 200 or 250 gigabytes?

    Idk how their usage works. But my total was a little over 1tb. But I don't think that was in 1 month. I had been downloading a lot of blu rays. The support got back to me, had me do a trace route and show them the details.

    They said it looks good and their system is fine. So there is nothing they could do about the speeds. So I canceled and was up and running on Astra in about 5 minutes. So long

    Does your ISP offer the service? If they do it's more likely a DNS CNAME pointed to the appropriate server for whatever provider they're using. Reasons for slow speeds are congestion on Astrawebs end (server/network) or RIM congestions.

    BTW, have you reset your modem?

    Yah I did reset the modem. It just happened out of the blue. Oh well all is good again back with astra. A few bucks more as I had a black friday deal but no matter. I seemed to be getting a decent amount of incompletes. I'm hoping they will go down with astra.
