Re: Shaw uses some sneaky kind of new throttling.

I suspect a lot of hardware cannot keep up with the amount of connections BT creates, alongside network congestion.

That, too....along with a near-infinite variety of routings and individual originating servers. Seems to me that p2p speeds are so over-determined that it is silly to use them to assess one's line speeds at all. My speeds sometimes vary wildly; other times, they can be rock solidly extremely FAST or interminably SLOW. Personally, I've seen no evidence of throttling by Shaw, but what I should really be saying is: If Shaw REALLY IS throttling, how in hell would I know it anyway?

Has a few tests to detect throttling, in both directions, not 100% but they can/will give indications on what to look for/at.
