Optus Cable - large downloads ending prematurely

After last week's slowness, here's another problem.


I'm trying to download Windows images from official Microsoft repositories, around 2-3 GB in size. Speeds are decent (around 1-2MB/s), but stops before the complete file is downloaded.


Tried from another Internet connection and no problems.


Is Optus filtering traffic? That's really annoying.

Re: Optus Cable - large downloads ending prematurely

I know Optus keeps an eye on traffic at the connection level, because it seems to know where all your data has been coming from. You may have to fight back, using a download manager that reconnects, though I thought all browsers did, these days.
