Torrent Problems

Iv been with plusnet for a long time and iv never had any problems with p2p downloading but over the months im having real troble downloading anything and a average speed.
I average to download at 4.5kb/s and the upload seems to spike up then slowly drop and this repeats all the time.

Well iv done port forwarding and thats open.
I dont know what else to do.

Can someone help me?

Look at all the other threads. PlusNet are shaping traffic and prioritising it to HTTP, Gaming etc. Thats why im migrating to BeThere.

Same here. If you want to use your connection for any peer-to-peer work, then you're with the wrong ISP I'm afraid. I'm just waiting for the switchover. A shame. There used to be a better balance here, but now the almost all the bandwitch has been handed over to gamers and YouTube addicts.

You'll need to move to another ISP as Plusnet just can't get their act together.
