Re: Comcast is using Sandvine to manage P2P Connections

My router is a FreeBSD handling multiple T1s and MPLS lines. 6/2Mbit cable line is a tiny fraction of what's going on.
At times you can seed and browse but 99% of the time seeding kills everything (through cable).

Do your packets go through Warrenton? (can you check via traceroute?)

If so, it is very, very important that you report this to Comcast tech support and let them know that you are in their Network Management test market. Please let me know.

See »www.comcast.net/terms/network/ for (sketchy) details.

Test market or no, your results are pretty surprising. So is it any amount of seeding that kills everything? Can you turn it down to 5 KB/s (40 kbps) or 1 KB/s (8 kbps) and still be prevented?
