I hope you are not supposed to be at work on Mondays - if so you are in trouble!

Bl**dy hell ! ... stands back in amazement ! ... just got a DL into double figures, an average of a tad under 30 kB/s and although just as erratic and unstable as previously it's still an order of magnitude better than I've generally been seeing over the recent week and a bit. I'm kinda sure it won't last tho so I'll just put it down to a fluke for now tongue

However,  I still don't believe that this level of performance is in any way covered by the statement "downloading large files over http may gradually slow at peak times" and/or "This will specifically effect customers who are already in management levels 1, 2 or 3 on their Plus or Premier accounts" seeing that I'm NOT by any stretch of the imagination a 'heavy' or even an 'average' user and it is a very dramatic change in previous performance which has been largely consistent over a considerable period of time.

Still no comment from any of the blue boys so far I see either rolleyes and there is absolutely no point in raising a ticket - if Comms can't provide any comment, suggestion or confirmation that it is a known problem being worked on or considered 'acceptable' or whatever then there is zero likelihood of CS being able to do so even if by some remote chance they actually understand that there is a problem somewhere.  Can I assume that my guess of the site(s) intentionally being severely clobbered by traffic management is more than a bit close to the mark then ?

Yep, they are shaping high bandwidth usage sites too now ..

Its because they have no bandwidth and no clue what to do about it!
