Bandwidth Throttling on 'Discord' voice comms

Over the last 2-3 days there has been a very obvious change for me on Discord (a voice communcations programme) while on BT.

 

Anyone not using them as an ISP is fine, however i'm experiencing huge packet loss / latency issues where the programme is useless at times. This (as far as i can see) is down to BT thorottling the programme.

 

Discord works like a P2P facility as far as i know, so it may be something to do with that. But it's a perfectly legal programme / application / whatever so should work fine

Hi @Bicceh,

 

We wouldn't be throttling your speeds. Have you noticed any issues with any other services or is it solely with Discord's servers? Are your broadband speeds ok?

 

Thanks

Absolutely everything is perfect except for Discord. On the three different server I've tried it can be OK for around 10 minutes, and then become a mess.

The only other people who I speak to who suffer from the same issue are people on BT also

I have exactly the same issue, as does a friend who has just moved to BT.

 

Additional observations are that often when I attempt to disconnect then reconnect to the voice servers, and it produces a No route error.

 

Most of the problems are resolved temporarily by rebooting the homehub, but obviously with multiple users, it's rather inconvenient

Re: Bandwidth Throttling on 'Discord' voice comms

I have this issue now; I moved to BT within the last month.

I really don't knnow what's causing it. Restarting the hub hasn't helped at all.
It appears at it's worst around 7pm-10pm in the evening on weekdays.

Has anyone got any suggestions on what I should do here?
