Something has changed.

  • Something on your network (new machines, new usage, new virus, etc)
  • Something on your line (new birds, new rust, ants)
  • Something at your exchange (new bandwidth hungry neighbours, link quality degraded, etc)
  • Something at Afrihost (new level of service, you downgraded your link, etc)
  • Something at the other end of your connection (e.g. facebook is having trouble)
  • All of the above

Have a look at what your hourly throughput actually is.  Maybe it's not what you expect.
