    Hi everyone, I recently signed up with RSAWeb on the their Openserve 40Mbps/20Mbps line (OS upgraded to 50Mbps/25Mbps yesterday). The speed, both down and up for Netflix (speed test done on Fast.com) and YouTube, have been consistent and in line with the quoted spec speed and I have been able...

    Telkom LTE shaping Deezer streaming traffic

    I have been unable to stream music through the Deezer app and website this past week. Switching to a 128Kb/s stream did not help either. Did some testing this morning and it appears that Telkom is crippling the stream, everything else (youtube, netflix, etc) works fine, when I run a speed test...

    ISP Fail - PC Network/Cybersmart Uncapped

    If there is one thing that pi55e5 me off, it's an uncapped package that costs the same amount as a capped package, and yet won't let me download the same amount of data as the capped package even if it ran 24/7 for the whole month. That means it's slow as a donkey, and especially slow at the...

    Traffic shaping on my Afrihost Capped account?

    I had my new Telkom 4Mbps line installed and activated my Afrihost 200GB Capped account yesterday, and everything seemed hunky-dory. However, my torrent downloads seem to be MASSIVELY shaped. Speed spikes to about 70KBps before dropping to below 1KBps, stays there for a few seconds, spikes to...

    Axxess reduced download speeds

    Yet another ISP tinkering with something that works.:mad: Axxess torrents are going at < 1/2 speeds this week. Efforts to get their support to look at it are proving futile. It feels like their unshaped capped accounts have been swapped over to the shaped section. Last week anything...

    It would appear that Mweb is blocking BitTorrent 100%

    I haven't been able to connect to BitTorrent intermittently over the last few days, mainly during daytime. Today however, it's been nearly all day, yet my web browsing is always totally unaffected. So I did a Glasnost test, which a website that tests to see if an ISP is shaping traffic, and...

    uncapped DSL Shaping - Axxess

    Anyone else having issues with uncapped DSL? This is now my 7 month in a row of being "managed" (shaped) at one point or another. According Axxess support staff I spoke to last night 24GB (not p2p in this case) is too much on a 6mb uncapped account.

    For more than a month now I have endured the 5kB/s newsserver downloads on my 1Mbit line with Afrihost Uncapped ADSL, only to find that these downloads are so corrupted at these low speeds that they cannot be repaired. Before Afrihost introduced their new shaping policy I avg'ed more than...

    You know what... After reading through all the forum posts... It seems that all of the uncapped ISP's seem to be struggling.
