Download speeds

I'm with Virgin and my 200 Mbps connection has typically achieved 
download speeds of around 50 Mbps from the hlshd CDNs.

As quite a few TV programmes are no longer available in hlshd, I decided 
reluctantly to switch to the 50fps option so I can still get HD content. 
However, hvfhd downloads (using hvfhd1 CDN) are typically only achieving 
download speeds of around 20 Mbps. This, combined with the fact that the 
downloads themselves are double the size of hlshd, means that my 
download times are 5 times longer than hitherto! Not good! :-(
