Why is that the BBC's videos are so rubbish?

you tube and other websites work perfectly fine, but the BBC ones suffer of horrible delays ...

This PC (P4, 512MB) at work is a bit constipated, but I get BBC vids ok. Some others are far worse.

... my ISP throttling the BBC's videos? (you know, fear of the iPlayer).

That would be terribly pathetic.

Since I'm at $ISP by anonimouse (2.00 / 0) #4 Tue Jul 29, 2008 at 11:50:50 AM EST
I asked some questions of the current network support shift.

Even $ISP, who don't have a great reputation with customers, make positive efforts to make iPlayer work as we couldn't live with the complaints if it didn't, even if we don't like its bandwidth consumption. They think there is a degree of prioritisation of iPlayer traffic, but I'm not sure of the details.

Only thing we definitely crap on is P2P during peak traffic periods.

That's your problem right there mate. by Breaker (4.00 / 1) #6 Wed Jul 30, 2008 at 03:07:05 AM EST
For broadband you need a white rooster offering.

The black chickens were for dialup.
