On Telecom here, and international internet speed is turned rather rubbish in the past couple of hours.

Anyone else getting this same problem?

It's OK here.

Seems fine here.

What sort of speeds are you getting Agent ??

Really crap ones. For example, Fileserve won't go above 25kB/s, and Youtube barely manages 50kB/s.

I managed to get 200kB/s out of the Entropia Universe updater, but that has 12 download threads, so must have been pushing it somehow.

National data is fine (1.7MB/s as usual)

Yes one of my Euro sites is very slow.
I think its Sunday over there, so they must all be stuck inside.

Seems to be back to normal this morning.

Back to slow overseas download rates again for me tonight, as was last last.
Do you think telecom are throttling certain download sites ??
NZ ADSL speedtest is blindingly fast so it aint the connection.

Yup piss-poor speeds out anything routed through global-gateway (2mbps?), but am fine through odyssey (18mbps, max line speed)
