Virgin Media - Downloads with Hotfile and Fileserve

Has anyone with Virgin Media recently had any speed issues downloading from Fileshare sites such as Hotfile and Fileserve.

I have a 20MB connection and the last couple of evenings I have had dial up speeds when I have tried downloading from these sites.

Would appreciate knowing if others have similar issues as there is no point having a 20MB connection if you can't use it!

Thanks

Are you sure you aren't just being traffic managed?

I have used my PC hardly at all in the last few weeks and have downloaded virually nothing, and checked with Virgin who say that I am not a heavy user or being traffic managed.

BT are using throttling, I have 20mbit and UNLIMTED downaloads yet between 6pm and 12am I get about 1kbps, after that I get 1Mbps for downloads

Virgin lie. They told me they don't traffic manage newsgroups or p2p when they do. Had a big argument with them about it a couple of months back.

I have done some speed tests and I am getting 4mb speed in evenings and 16mb in mornings. Sounds as though Virgin speeds are either throttled or cannot provide greater then 25% of service in evenings, even without being impacted by the Traffic management policy. When I spoke to Virgin they said everything was ok as far as they were concerned and it must be my PC's build thats causing the speed problems, however that doesn't make sense if it works ok in the mornings. Back to them later! Thanks for the feedback!
