Virgin Media Broadband throttling

1

does anyone know how to bypass or get around VM traffic shaping on newsgroups, its starting to melt my head that if i go to download a particular show in primetime virgin throttle the fuck out of my connection taking me from 3.5mbs down to 650kb/s! theres gotta be a workaround but google is bringing me up dry lest i fork over more money for virtual servers and whatnot

Cheers Katie ill have a look into it and lemac I do most of my downloading after 12 it's just on the of occasion where you want to watch a particular show.. Are you not throttled on the 100mb line??

I am, think it's a 5gb (maybe 10?) Limit until 11pm

Yeah there's a limit but they deliberately throttle newsgroups even if you haven't reached that limit
