      I need to do some more tests to confirm where the problem is, but early indicators would suggest to me that Sky are doing something, either intentionally or by fault. I will post back my finding.

      All I would say is, just be wary about how quick you are to Jump to defend Sky...
      There are currently issues with Filesonic and Fileserve. Both are unconnected with Sky.

      I read this on another forum.

      Re: Megaupload

      So it's not Sky blocking or throttling Mediafire.

      What would now be a good question (And I will ask it), how to get round the Block ??? (Which has nothing to do with SKY)

      Fluke, please read the list from the link below. If Mediafire is still there the list will explain why.

      I think that you need a 2nd line Exdee!

      ...and there was me thinking i was a heavy user.

      Last month I had a total throughput (up & down) just short of 400GB.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      With stats like that, they'd be scarred!

      Just think, with your current connection you can use up all of many people's monthly allowance in 6 hours!

      I hope that you are not downloading lots of porn so that you can sell it on DVD or Blu-Ray discs!

      Next time someone asks about whether or not Sky's Broadband Unlimited package has any restraints, I guess we can both say 'nope'.

      Haha. That cracked me up. I can assure you though that I am not too keen on spending time behind bars. Hence everything I do download is for personal use only and is downloaded via encrypted ftp.
