At the moment the BBC seem to be struggling to provide enough bandwidth to the UK. Recently the SD iPlayer streams were cut from 800kbps to 480kbps (HD is still good). I guess usage from other countries is a low priority for them. Hopefully they will upgrade their servers soon, but in the meantime all I can suggest is using a UK VPN (I use Golden Frog's to access US-only content - it's not the cheapest VPN but it's always been reliable and fast).

Regards,

There is also a SoX resampler for foobar. It's the best one I have found (although for low bitrate 32kHz radio streams the standard PPHS re-sampler would be fine).

What happens outside the UK if you connect through the flash-based web pages...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_rad...hree/listenlive
128kbps AAC inside the UK by default, 48kbps AAC if you select the low bandwidth version (hidden down near the bottom of the page)

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio3/hd-sound/
320kbps AAC inside the UK

on first link, there is a 32 kbps AAC stream without possibility of choice,
second link - "HD" - stream doesn't work outside the UK
