what would cause slow attachment downloads from Yahoo Mail

Post by GLOpro » Fri Jun 06, 2008 9:33 am

Hi,

A friend of mine, who has just connected with Exetel Naked, has indicated that his Yahoo mail downloads are extremely slow ie 17-20kb/s. where his previous provider iPimus appeared to get 200kb/s downloads.

His line speed is ok, for this time of the day being at around 2Mb/s but he is concerned about this speed difference.

how much difference would there be with the backbones of Exetel and iPrimus? And can this be improved?

Thanks

actually, it appears that any downloads from US sites start off reasonable then drop right back to crawling pace.

Just downloading 6.2Mb from Firefrox/thunderbird. 43KB/sec
