Not to be confused with Mike, Wildmind.

Nope - I'm pretty sure we ain't done nothing for the Al Wyse file.

Is anyone else seeing this sort of difference?

Surely it's down to higher priority for http over ftp?

Tests conducted yesterday evening around 21:30 as posted elsewhere

Wyse WMA DL: av 170 kB/s (pretty consistent a few drops to 0 kB/s)

Rapidshare HTTP DL: av 21 kB/s (wildly erratic, 0 - 50 kB/s)

USA HTTP DL: av 145 kB/s (pretty consistent a few drops to 0 kB/s)

PN FTP DL: av 65 kB/s (pretty consistent)

USA FTP DL: av 40 kB/s (erratic, 0 - 100 kB/s)

When I first DL'd the Wyse interview a few days ago, it came down at a consistent maxed out line speed. The first and only DL for a long time to get anywhere close to line speed and most certainly the first DL in a long time to maintain anything close to a consistent speed.  Just about everything else was (and to a certain extent still is) slower and considerable more erratic - some SIGNIFICANTLY worse than others it would appear Wink 

Being hosted on a PN site is obviously a benefit but I must say it did look/feel suspicious that traffic was being 'helped' rather than 'hindered' by traffic management even if it is most likely more coincidence than reality.
