Throttling

My Fast.com and speedtest.net both show me 100Mbs (this is 1/2 what i should be getting, but that is something else...)

Just purchased a digital download game on xbox, and getting a capped 10Mbs download - indicating ~11hr install time?

How can i check if certain traffic is being rate limited?

Re: Throttling

Virgin don’t throttle traffic.

What are you Speedtesting from and via wired or wireless?

Re: Throttling

VM aren't throttling anything. The CDN you're downloading from might be if under heavy load.

Re: Throttling

thought there was FUP policy, but CDN is a good shout..

I've exampled connection tracking on my linux based firewall can see NAT going out to 82.20.175.210 host-82-20-175-210.not-set-yet.virginmedia.net (i'd assume this is a local CDN).

Re: Throttling

And what do you get wired direct to the hub?
