I'm currently with Slingshot but they seem to heavily shape the ftp connections during the free off peak period.
If you do a lot of ftp transfers, what sort of transfer are you getting monthly?
Thanks to all who submit some info :)
Ragnor: At home on Big Time I get about 15 KB/s from that ftp using one connection, if I use a download manager with 4 segments/connections I get 60 KB/s.
For comparison from a local NZ based ftp at my work I get ~400 KB/s which is roughly the max my home connection can do given it's 4-5Mbit sync speed (no cabinetisation in our area yet).
lostangel: Thanks for testing, looks like ftp is heavily throttled. :(
