Re: FTP throttling?

Yes. It is a routing problem confirmed with tracert.
I know this is a very stupid question, but is there anyway go through a different route to that FTP server? My VPN has limited bandwidth usage, so VPN is not a permanent solution. Tracert gets stuck at some backbone Comcast IP address in Chicago. I found the IP listed in a forum where others were having the same issue. One guy had a tracert time with that server of 1720ms. This routing problem has been going on for almost 2 weeks now for me.

Nope. Not for you as an individual. Network routing is beyond your control.

Can you share any data around this speculation?

src/dst IP address?
traceroute at the time of the problem (better yet use mtr)
extending pings at the destination and previous hop
