    I have a 2 mbit connection with a monthly cap and 2 AM - 8 AM unlimited downloading.
    Since a few days, I've been getting extremely slow speeds for probably every download.

    Morning, downloads work fine (most of the time) but in the free time, it is slow.

    So, I decided to sit from 2AM - 8AM to monitor the downloads and guess what I found ??

    • Torrents are working fine (fluctuating speeds but working)
    • Tested a download from microsoft, downloaded @ 243 kBps
    • Speed test results:
    • None of the file-hosters cross 5 kBps(rapidshare, megaupload, etc., not even premium accounts work).
    • Downloading from grabthatfile.com also gives <5 kBps.

    What is the problem ?
    If there are any more tests which can determine what is happening, please help me.

    Also, my ISP is not known to block anything, everything was fine until few days back.
