Anyone used Giganews - slow speeds?

Since I got 10MB NTL broadband, I can easily get the full 1.17Meg/sec off Giganews, but recently, I've noticed that after 11am/12pm, suddenly I'm lucky to get a third of that.

Say I download headers at 8am. I get 1.17Meg/sec.
Do the same 3 hours later and 300k/sec.
Couple of hours after that, <100k/sec usually.

Same with downloads.
3 threads can easily manage over 1meg/sec in the morning, but in the evening, I'm lucky to get over 200k/sec.
(Trying 10 right now and just scraping 800k/sec)

Did a traceback and everything is fine (<12ms for most hops)

Visited some other sites and can pretty much max out the connection.

No idea what's wrong, but it seems to be only Giganews that is getting slow.
Anyone else experiencing this?
