I've recently had a CityFibre leased line installed in the office, 500up/500down.
speedtest.net reports correct upload and download speeds.
However if i try to download a single file from home (Virginmedia 200Mbps line) the maximum speed i can download is about 50Mbps.
All equipment on the LAN runs at Gb speed correctly.
CityFibre say they do not throttle the line. We are using a Draytek 3900 series router which is capable of handling 1Gbps line.
If i start downloading additional files at the same time the speed increases and maxes out to about a total of about 100Mbps.
CityFibre suspect a throttling on the internet when the data has left their network and heads towards Virgin.
My VirginMedia connection at home downloads at 210Mbps normally. If I download e.g. Itunes it uses all the 210Mpbs.
Does it sound right there would be thottling on the internet?
