I was downloading some, we'll call them "LINUX BLU RAY DISCS," on campus and I was initially getting decent speed(better than the 300k/s off campus).

Then I checked the speed after a few minutes and noticed my speed had dropped down to 150k/sec.

Is IT capping speeds on campus now? God, I remember when Buge used to talk about how great UMR was due to such an open network we had.

Where in the hell have you been?

This is from 2007, but even before that there were bandwidth tiers.

off-campus. Co-ops. Out of the country.

Bandwidth tiers started in 2005, but you could still download a decent amount of data at high speed. The "new" alternating high-low bandwidth is kindof odd.

Does this also affect on campus(registered to IT) devices, such as those in the CS, EE Labs?

As far as I can tell, it affects users. That is, if you have 2 computers registered with your MST ID and they use a combined 500MB in an hour then all your bandwidth across all your devices gets capped to ~120k/s.

It seems to be per user ID, so I don't know if it'll work that way on campus machines in the CLCs or whatever. Someone should test that.

CLCs are always uncapped.

Which is why you never ever sneak up on a foreign student in the library (or any other CLC).

CLC's are capped, but differently. They are treated as one big system but have their own dedicated portion of the pipe. They cannot exceed that allocation and fair queuing is done across all systems within that allocation. So, if everyone flocks to the CLC's for downloads, guess what happens?

YMMV
