Re: [TWC] TW Internet Ultra 50/5mbit getting only 1mb/sec Usenet
I have noticed the same problem. I've sighed at every post about Usenet Throttling in the past, but have found that I no longer can get close to the speeds I used to get or that I routinely get from non Usenet sources.
I can hit the modem cap from many different speedtest sights and many different servers - I just watched Meet The Press on their website and saw it buffer at 30 Megs (my plan limit) - at 9PM on a weekday...wirelessly!. 20+ connections can't so that anymore on Usenet. Time of day doesn't seem to change that. And it happens with two different services with different server locations - when both used to work fine.
It can't be an overloaded node or all sources would be impacted. One possible wrinkle - TW seems to have routing issues to DC and ATL. I think the main Giganews US server is in DC. I will post on that issue separately.
