Getting 6.0mb/s at 3pm, hope it holds out or at least doesnt drop to near zero this evening, I'll be delighted.

Option 3, as I understand it that's 300 GB/month now, I didn't even use 100 last month, and this is the third month in a row I've had terrible peak hours bandwidth.

yep same here as i understand it the fup is 300 gig now, what are you basing the connection speed on a download via p2p or torrent ? or news net try going to http://www.nvidia.com/content/global/global.php and download the latest gforce graphics drivers just save the file to dek top your not going to run it. see what speed the file comes down at. The reason why i recommend this is its a legit download and they seem to have the best server speed i have come across currently getting 239kbs wich is right for my current 2.5 meg profile

I use any of the http based speed testers including this one.

125kB/s from the Nvidia site, 1.1 meg on the speedtest. Nowhere near what I'm used to getting, it's throttling/congestion. I PMed BT_Care last night and haven't had a response yet.

have you checked on the speedtester.bt.com site to see what ip profile you have for your connection ? i understand throtteling/congestion isues but unless you are being fupped cant see them restricting you that badly esp as you were only getting 125kbs from the nvidea donwload by the way that mathces the 1.1mb speed test result.

If by "this one" you mean the tbb Java speedtester, that doesn't use http. I don't think the Flash one does either.

[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
The details don't particularly matter, there's no disparity in the results regardless of how I test it.

I had a response from BT_Care, saying all is ok, I'm pretty sure throttling would have been mentioned if I was subjet to it.

Download speedachieved during the test was - 489 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :7616 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 6500 Kbps

It's obviously not ok, and my ip profile is fine. I guess it must be congestion, to the tune of a 90% bandwidth reduction during peak hours.
