    I've noticed mine has been painfully slow lately... Eastlink says all is well. They did a speed test over the phone with me and she said the 1.5mb d/l rate was normal...

    What would cause my speed to fluctuate from 0.001 to 1.5mb...?? Pretty sure (99.999%) it isn't spyware or a virus.. Would Eastlink throttle my speeds at all for some reason??

    yep, Bitlord is usually running.. It downloads with unlimited speed while uploads are capped at 10kb/s. My download speeds in Bitlord are really slow too.. I rarely see torrents coming in faster than 15kb/s.

    I notice the same thing on xbox live.. I got from full strength to one bar within Call of Duty 5... It sucks. Aliant 10 MB is much better than Eastlink 15 IMO.
