Curious case of bandwidth shortage


ZDNet Australia reports that local service provider, Optus has denied claims that its broadband service, OptusNet, has run out of international bandwidth, saying the article printed on technology news Web site Whirlpool is “greatly exaggerated”. The Web site quoted a “confidential source” from within the company who said customers had been complaining that the “network has slowed to a crawl since the 30th of August”, decelerating to 10Kbps from its normal premium speeds of 200-400Kbps.” [Via Broadband Reports.]
