Regular Net Traffic is Being Deprioritised.

Post by IronM@sk » Wed May 05, 2010 12:17 pm

I am adding my complaints to the slow bandwidth wagon and will launch a support ticket immediately after this post.

My RSS reader alerted me to the fact the latest epidode of HDNation (Free and perfectly legal HTTP download) and a TekZilla Daily clip from Revision3 were available. I get the 720p30fps version so this particulat episode was 437mb (34mb for TZ Daily). I can't recall exatly what time before midday I started the download but my speed was around 30-40 kB/sec. Miraculously at 12pm my download speed increased to over 400 kB/sec (Using default FireFox download by the way).

I keep reading posts by CoreyPlover that say only traffic on non-standard ports are affected by deprioritisation, can someone then tell me why a regular HTTP browser download was shaped to 30 kB/sec before midday, then let to run freely after?

I also have similar problems with YouTube streaming. It simply doesn't. I have to wait til it starts playing, then pause it to let it buffer. I timed a 5 minute movie trailer in 720p yesterday took 47 minutes to fully buffer. This is unacceptable.

I am in QLD (as many experiencing such slowness are) on the MYDE exchange. I also live directly across the road from said exchange and my router actually says it syncs above the rated plan speed (not doubt because i'm so close)

The graphs in members facilities show the link utilisation, and an upgrade is planned.

It's nothing to do with prioritisation.
