Default Content server for Optus?

Hi guys,

Recently I've been getting painfully slow downloads within Steam. It used to max out my connection but now sometimes I only get 20KB/s. Tried quite a few differerent Australian content servers but they're mostly all the same. My friend on Internode doesn't seem to have the same problem.

Anyone think it's my ISP? (optus). All other internet bandwidth is pretty fast. Can get downloads of 1.2MB/s.

(aka Xenophage on SC2)

You were probably just downloading a game from an overseas server that was getting particularly hammered at the time.
