Re: Huawei B535 Problem on THREE £17 Month Unlimited Plan

Well , its been fine for the last 4 hours.

The network page says "We're really sorry. There's an issue with the network in your area at the moment."

But its said that for the last few weeks, will see how it goes.

I certainly think they do throttle in it some way. When my Xbox has been downloading a huge game most of the daytime it flies during the first few hours hovering around 4-5MB/s then reaches a point where it slows down to only 1MB/s and continues at that speed until I reboot my router.

Same can be said for torrenting too (If I'm allowed to utter the word here, I presume its like Voldemort). Once they deem you've had enough my client just stops downloading totally. Another reboot solves it for the most part, because you are assigned a different external IP address each time you reboot the router.

For me I find network contention to be the biggest issue, my connection is fast during most of the day time, but come 5pm on wards the speed drops by a half, and around 7-9pm I'm lucky to see 1MB/s.

What router are you using? Sounds more likely to be the router overloading a cache or similar. I get full tilt red hot (lol) maximum of a massive 20-30mb for hours on end.

In reply to a post by gary333:
It's possible they are updating / doing something with the network.

Three have been involved in a major network rebuilt from their Samsung hardware and core, to a new core network with masts - all powered by Huawei. There were reports last week that Three has lost some key individuals.

Perhaps recent Govt announcements has caused problems.
