Re: [Speed] My French Car Forum is Being Throttled - But Why?I am on a Comcast 12/2 connection. I clicked on your link and the site loaded in about 4 seconds. Certainly not the fastest loading homepage I have seen, but considering that it is probably a low budget site and had to travel across the Atlantic to Middle Tennessee, I would not consider it to be "throttled". Try going to some of the Taiwan computer parts sites if you want to really see slow load times.
If you are still having problems, then the problem is probably in the routing between you and the site. Try doing some traceroutes to see what the differences are between your connection and mine.
Here is a traceroute from my location:
Tracing route to autodejavel.fr [126.96.36.199]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

I do see a few timeouts after the German oneandone.net hops, but that is really not unusual (I often see those doing traceroutes to Google and Yahoo! too).
We can never have enough of nature.
We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.
