Slow torrents, fast everything else.
Anyone else experiencing slow torrents? Last week, and the 3 months I've had BB50 prior, I could literally top out my connection at 5.7MB/s and now starting a couple days ago I'm lucky if I hit 1.3MB/s.
All speedtests are fine, and read in the neighborhood of where they should read. And according to the shaw techs I chatted with, all they rely on for slow speed complaints are these speed tests.
It's funny though, because everything else is fine. I can get 6.5MB/s on newsgroups. I can download through private servers at 5.5MB/s. However, a torrent with 5000 seeds, and 128 leechers nets me 1.3MB/s.
Nothing has changed on the system AT ALL, the primary use of the system is web development. And torrents/media server. No updates, nadda.
I've asked on a local Winnipeg forum, and there are a few other people experiencing the same thing.
Now, I understand that if I was to upload too much, they would packet shape. Which is fine, who cares about that so much. In fact in the TOS it says they will do so. BUT will not touch the download rates.
When you're paying the amount of money we are for internet, and are given a certain service. And then that is just taken away on one specific thing, it kinda makes you wonder wtf their doing.
Any insider clues, actions that could be taken etc?
