Hi all,

I know there are multiple threads on this topic already, but don't have time to read through them all.

I'm on Telecom Big Time, from about a week ago I've suddenly had extremely slow download speeds, reduced by almost 10 times.

I mainly download from Megashares, sometimes from Rapidshares. Normally I get around 200kb/s or more from Megashares, but for the past week I've hardly gone over 25kb/s.

From a rough scan of the other threads it sounds like Telecom is having a problem, but it's still not fixed. Is this correct?

Or can someone briefly explain what the problem is? and what's Telecom doing about it?

Thanks a lot, sorry for repeat thread
