[OOL] Strange Speed Issue with NNTP
I start an NNTP DL, the speed will vary between 150-300KB. The DL maintains that speed. While that is happening I go to speedtest.net and start a test. As the speedtest test starts, the NNTP DL speeds start to rise eventually getting near the theoretical maximum of 7-8MB/s. SpeedTest reports DL speeds of about 50-53Mbps at the same time. This has been reproducable many many times. It's absolutely consistent and has been this way for a couple of months. I called Optimum twice and they insist they are not throttling NNTP but what else could be going on? Does anyone have an idea?
said by undecided:What NNTP server are you using? If it's news.optonline.net, it is, and has always been, speed limited.

no, it's a paid for server. The strange thing I am inquiring about is the fact that the speed increases as I mix in the speedtest.net traffic. Basically hitting speedtest, unthrottles whatever throttling is going on. I am not saying it's OOL as they claim they are not but something is capping my NNTP speed until I mix speedtest in there. It may be that 'other' traffic mixed in also may cause the speed to increase.
