Terrible usenet speeds ??? Is it throttling.

Go to solution

Firstly hello to all that are reading this.. I have had a problem with very slow usenet speeds, at peak times as well as off peak. The thing is I don't really use that much of an allowance around the 70gb - 80gb a month which in today's terms with three teenage sons who play the xbox and surf a lot is not that much. So when I want to use usenet a service that I have to pay for as well as having to buy the software that I use for that service I am a little more than disgusted.. Here are my line stats...

 

Yes I had just reset my router but I had previously been connected for 4 days. 

 

 

With thanks

are you connected to the master or test socket or somewhere else?

errors don't look bad - the high numbers are firmware bugs

 

can you run  http://speedtester.bt.com and post the results

Re: Terrible usenet speeds ??? Is it throttling.

those stats look ok to me and even if BT looked at them they may also say the same.

 

I have similar stats although your connection type is 'interleave' which i was on and had very high pings, contact BT and ask them to change this to a 'Fast' connection - BT India gets confused by this as they read from a script BUT tell them it is not a fault, you want you line type changed!!

 

Also, change your wireless settings to broadcast on Wireless N only - all modern devices accept Wireless N which is faster than the B & G networks which can bottleneck your wireless speeds - dont forget YOU WILL LOOSE speed on wireless - this is normal, but Wireless N - i can now stream and watch BBC HD on iPlayer.

 

Hope this helps!!

Usenet should not be throttled, I use Usenet for large Binary downloads all the time and have not come across any slowdown.

 

What files are you downloading, news or binary. Who is your usenet supplier. That could be the culprit.

 

What news program do you use: Can you change the ports your news program uses
