Bell throttles P2P between about 5pm and 1am. It seems to vary a little day by day. Rogers throttles P2P 24/7. If you have a better choice, take it. I doubt FibeTV will be affected. Bell is basically throttling internet P2P to make room for their own services, like FibeTV. The throttling on Bell is not that bad. At least it goes up to full speed at off peak times.
Ya I'm on Rogers now, it seems they do rolling throttling of torrent (sometimes its fine, others its pretty bad). So it's only specific ports that they throttle? I can still expect to get 25mbps - 6mbps for 1 TV even at 7pm?
Is the Bell line affected by others households on the line like cable is?
While I was spending some quality time today with a Level 2 Fibe TV tech in Ottawa debugging a Fibe TV VOD issue (successfully!), I asked what type of traffic also ran over the Fibe TV network. The tech said that the Fibe TV intranet is not shared by any other network traffic.
