Telewest have admitted to 'traffic shaping'

I contacted Newshosting as I was unhappy about the fluctuating speeds, and not going anymore over 400kb/s whereas the connection is 10meg.

Try using port 7000,8000,9000 as it forces newshosting to send the data packets via different routes, I find port 7000 and 9000 to work the best.

TW still throttle it especially during the weekends.

Hi....what do you mean by 'throttling' ?? they advertise thier broadband on tv now as 'NO LImITS'. so if they are doing it to stop you attaining the top of your paid for speed then that is wrong.

what they mean by no limits is no download/upload restrictions, such as an allowance of say 40gb/month.

You don't see any adverts stating we traffic shape heavy users.. its something they'd keep quiet.
