      Sky BB Unlimited - Traffic Shaping on usenet?

      Hi,

      Normally get 600kbps plus downloading from newsgroups, but for the past few days it won't go past 300kbps.

      Tried a couple of machines to rule out dodgy config on sabnzbd. Switched ports and tried different servers.

      Other normal d/l's are fine.

      Speed checker on this site verifies 6696kbps Down, 655kbps Up.

      Normally I'd assume shaping, but I'm on the unlimited package!

      Any ideas? Could sky accidentially be shaping my line?

      Much Appreciated,
      John

      Package is the unlimited up to 20mb one. I've even logged on to sky.com to check that it hasn't changed :P

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 7906 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 37.5 db 20.5 db
      Noise Margin 6.3 db 15.5 db

      Much Appreciated,
      John

      No problems with Usenet here, using Giganews, could it be the host having a problem?
