Re: [Extreme Plus] Seemingly still shaping torrent downloads

said by Ree :

So what kind of upstream is required for ACK packets on a 32mbit download? Rogers says they throttle to 80kbit, so I guess that's not enough?

Don't forget about the overhead.

I rarely have downstream speed issues with torrents (rarely enough that it's probably those specific torrents, not my connection), even without capping my upload speeds (which usually stabilize around the definitely-throttled speeds of 8kB/s).

Do you have number of connection limits set?

I think I did, but I gave up on bittorrent and switched to usenet, so I'm not 100% sure.

Whatever my settings were, when I was with Teksavvy I was able to get a consistent 500kB/s, but with Rogers I'm lucky to hit 200kB/s.
