Since my recent 2mb upgrade I have been facing extremely slow bittorrent speeds. They used to go at about 110kb/s max on my 1mb line but now they are struggling at about 50kbs max. Plus net what is happeningHuh

Fair enough,

Lots of seeds and have tried many different torrents. It seems others are having the same problem since they upgraded their accounts.

Bit Torrent network is dependant on a number of things, first whether you allow incoming connections or have the correct port forwarded.

Secondly that you limit your upload speed, so you don't max out your connection into one direction.

Finally an unknown firm (at this time) has been targeting a small number of torrents and hogging the majority of the bandwidth.

If it's just with torrents and not on speed tests or when downloading from good servers, then id say it's either your torrent program settings or something else like ports/firewalls etc, that is if the torrents your trying have a lot more seeds than peers.

The test torrent's just done 230k for me at 10 a.m. Sunday, so if you're on premier and getting a poor speed on it, it's your setup.

this guide might help, though the test torrent on that particular page is no good now.

That unknown firm wouldn't be either the RIPAA or MIPAA - or someone working on their behalf would it Wink

This mysterious reference to an unknown firm has left me cold.
Could somebody please explain what it's about?

Geoff, all that is happening is a company or other party are effectively causing a Denial of service against certain files - by attaching a number of clients to a given seed using up the seed's resources they can prevent access (or atleast reasonable access) to that file...

That may be happening at some time. It isn't however answering my question becuase up until I got the upgrade the torrents were all working very well!
