Re: [AB] Erratic usenet speeds lately?
I noticed that from 8am to 11pm MST I only get 1/2 my connection speed when using Usenetnow (Readnews). And from 11pm to 8am I can usually almost max out my connection.
I use astraweb, and lately, instead of the full 6 MB/s i also get a slowdown from around 9 in the morning until after dinner time, but it seems to be around 4 MB/s at the minimum. Maybe it's the news server that can't keep up? Steam is also significantly slower during those times but seems to be faster when there isnt a large sale on or it's later at night...
Well, just as I guessed.
Seems to be some sort of throttling going on from 8am to 11pm MST on usenet server side, not ISP.
Currently maxing my connection at 52.7Mbps.
24.8Mbps from 8am-11pm MST.
