Is anybody experiencing that Slingshot is throttling the VPN speed to 60k/s on all you can eat plan.

Because you're on the AYCE and people are using them to torrent/DL stuff over VPNs, so they've throttled them.

perhaps all the free RWC wireless internet hotspots are sharing the AYCE bandwidth pool now too :)
