p2p throttling.

Look,with all the ranting going on in the forum about p2p I went a googling .Top shot was this one about BT abandoning p2p throttling due to adverse customer impact.Some fair points raised about the damage done in the long term to broadband as a whole.

It's four years or so old but seems to be exactly the sort of thing that PN are experiencing right now.

Would PN like to comment on this? (and I don't mean would everyone with a gripe like to hijack this thread)

p2p throttling.

Like I said in another post, I find myself using more bandwidth now than ever before. Because I spend almost twice as long downloading a file because the speeds are 50% slower than before, but during that time my upload speed is at max almost constantly. So effectively I am using more bandwidth uploading than what I am physically downloading.

But you could try limiting your upload speed to less than 80% of the maximium or you will just block yourself up.Found that on google.http://homepage.ntlworld.com/robin.d.h.walker/cmtips/p2p.html
