Traffic Shaping/Rate Limits


[link to this post]
 
Has there been some change for Madasafish customers fairly recently? Although I rarely use Usenet nowadays I've noticed that whereas previously I always got line speed whatever the time of day I'm now limited to 2mb at times corresponding to the Plusnet 8am-10pm line rate limit. Was always of the impression that these things didn't apply to MaaF people....or have things changed? (This is via Giganews direct rather than using the MaaF Usenet allowance).

Have you guys in Sheffield snuck this one by us or is it something you've overlooked?

No add-on availble for MaaF customers as there is for Plusnet either.

Hi,

Just referred this to Dave to have a look, but do you notice a difference between the direct connection and the MAAF allowance during the same times? It'd be useful to know if you see the same issues with the MAAF feed. If you could let us know that'd be great, thanks.

Also when did this start, and has it been every night?

Oops, another edit - no, it's certainly not deliberate.

Regards,

Matthew Taylor

Thanks for the prompt response guys,seems my bad whinging about line rates. Looks more like a stuck IP profile, should have checked before posting. Results from BT Performance Tester.......

Download speed achieved during the test was - 1.86 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 0.4 Mbps-2 Mbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :8.13 Mbps(DOWN-STREAM), 0.45 Mbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 2 Mbps

Router stats confirm 8128 connection which is as good as I can get. Be obliged if you could have a look at the profile your end. PM to Orbrey re username.
Ticket ID: 61484471 raised (22 hour response time?)
