      Post Filesonic & sky

      anyone know of any issues with filesonic and sky b/b ?

      i ask because my filesonic premium acc is downloading really, really slow...as of 1hr ago....
      all speedtests show normal speeds

      are sky b/b starting to filter out file hosting sites ?

      i know some other isp's that use iwf filtering.....
      i hope sky are not going down that road ...

      What files are you trying to download? There's always other options.

      vob file music videos !

      dont want to go down torrent way..na na...to risky

      sometimes ( filesonic ) speeds start at full whack, then quickly go down to 200-400kbp/s.....

      UPDATE -----

      Just downloaded movie file from rapidshare @ full speed......all the way till finish.....so it MUST either be filesonic's end or sky are introducing iwf filtering for filesonic......if they are, that sucks big time..
      Also means, its only a matter of time before they filter ALL file hosts....
      And that aint good for anyone, except sky of course

      Sky have always used IWF filtering, as do most UK ISPs. If bad content is discovered, normally it would lead to the server being banned, you would not notice a slow down, just a dead stop.
