P2P slows downloads?


P2P slows downloads?

I notice that whenever I am running a P2P client like eMule, I never get speeds more than about 700Kb/s, even if the client is not actually transferring stuff at that moment (though it might have a lot of network connections open as it tries to find stuff).

Has anyone else noticed a degradation from using P2P services, other than the expected bandwidth loss from active downloads?

The sad thing is that currently, even without running eMule at all, I can't get reliably above 750 but this a recent problem that I'm currently discussing with support.
