Hello,

In the last 24 hours I've noticed that all sites like, Rapidshare, Fileserve etc appear to have been throttled by Telecom. Throttled so much there is little to no connectivity

Has anyone else experienced this?

I've checked my Jdownloader is up to date, cap not exceeded, everything thing else is operational. It did coincide with the bad weather Auckland has been having. But this is too much of a coincidence for me so I turn to you would be geniuses for your input :)

(ps, yes my accounts are up to date and active)

Thanks

Yes, downloads for the last week or so have been very slow / erratic. I would suspect this is due to a lot more people using these sites recently and may have led Xtra/ Telecom to start aggressive rate shaping.

Other content (not from content delivery networks which are always fast) is fine and speedy.

Yup. I've never had any issue with Telecom rate shaping anything, good speed unless the server is slow.

Just to confirm we have not done or change anything in terms of these services. May be best to verify with the website owners if they have done something? Or maybe try again tonight and if you're still having problems after the above then contact our helpdesk.

As far as I was aware, Telecom doesn't shape or priorities any sites / traffic differently. They have only ever done it on their Big Time & Go Large Plans.

Exact same thing but its been happening for 2-3weeks now.

Premium accounts on fileserve and filesonic, used to be 2mb/s now only 100-200kb

IDM and Jdownloader both dead slow at 1-200kb.

I have got better results using fileserve download manager from fileserve.com, some now go at 1.5mb/s+ but others crawl 80-200kb again.

There is a forum post on the jdownloader support site with the same issue, I've posted asking what country and ISP.

Heres my adsl speed - while also downloading 2 x  files at 170kb each
speed

I've been experiencing the same problem. Been getting speed around 150kb/s max.
Most of the time it hovers around 70kb/s which is fairly annoying.

You might find that it's coinciding with the recent release of a number of popular new TV Shows and/or movies which is causing their servers to get hammered.

Look at the TV schedule for mid-late September, new seasons of just about everything starts up again in the space of a couple of weeks.

Just a theory :)
