      Fibre speeds slow tonight

      Hi, I got fibre installed around a week ago and its been fine for the past week syncing @26mbps and getting around 24.5mbps throughput.

      But this evening everything has slowed down. For example:

      That is less than a meg on a 26mbps connection. Its the same with other websites too, UK based servers do give higher speeds but they are not the consistent 24mbps (around 3MB/s) I normally get.

      Here is what I get when downloading from a UK based server:

      But when I use the BT speed tester beta, which I have heard bypasses lots of the ISP's side of things I get this:

      This is much more like what I normally get from most websites.

      Is anyone else having this problem and does anyone know what is causing it? Again it was fine before today and I got in at about 5pm so am not sure what time this started.

      Thanks.

      It seems when I use a download manager that does multi-threaded downloads I can get full speed. Any ideas what this signifies? Congested node at the exchange?
