Re: Bandwidth throttling controlled through D-Link router??
Basically a decent quality typical iPlayer stream is 300KBps +. If they throttle my bandwidth, I then can't stream and watch. I would have to wait however long it takes to download. hours sometimes. I ideally stream and can't most evenings because the connection is too slow.
The point is that in this day and age where youtube and TVon demand services are extremely popular, VM are throttling users for 750MB which is not a lot at all when you think about it. The user then has to deal with a slow connection for 5 hours or whatever it is.
I may have a different issue, but I can guarantee I go over that limit most days and my connection is slow for certain periods.
And why would I wait for the early hours to use the web. I sleep then.
I had orange broadband (through a BT line) for 2 years and never had restricted bandwidth or certainly not to the same level as I never noticed!
