throttling port 119

i was trying to dl something from usenet tonight and was getting 100 kb/s where as i typically get about 1200 kb/s.  I tried a few different ports and then everything was back up and running.  is it likely ATT is throttling this port and the few others i tried?

ran a glasnost test and says it indicates no throttling.  But my usenet server has no issues and i tried different computers and different newsreaders.  So i have to think att is throttling.

Based on the other reports, I think you're right on. You were able to get it to work by moving to a different port, right?

I can confirm the exact same results. I have a 12Mbps account and suddenly the speed was capping at 3Mbps when I always got the full 12Mbps from my server before. Only one of the ports still gives the full speed.

Well, safe to say AT&T is throttling those ports... at least you know... I highly doubt you could get them to do anything though.. i mean, it is usenet and all Smiley Happy

is throttling allowed under the T&C of uverse? for your info doc usenet is more than just illegal movies and music, which is not why i use usenet.  usenet has been given a dirty name now because "pirates" use it and bit torrent as well.

I'm well aware that usenet isn't all copyright content, I'm just saying I wouldn't expect them to do anything about it. The closest you might get is if you claim you are getting throttled connections across all applications on that port. That might prompt them to look into it, but you'd have to get high enough in the network management team for them to care.

You could try SSL. Typically it is over port 443 for usenet which is the same port as https.

Believe it or not, 443 is throttled too, which is sort of ridiculous. Now there's all sorts of situations where we basically won't be getting what we pay for.
