so i'm on the unlimtied optioj for broadbnad - apparently this will allow me about 100 gigs before bt get concerned
so when using bittorrent, the fastest download speed i can get is about 18kbps - peak times about 3kbps
so it takes a whole day to download on movie
so i reckon it's impossible to use more than about 50 gigs a month unless i use iplayer, but i'm not in tv anyway
does everyone else have the same speeds or can is somehow increase the speed? how do i do this?
thanks guys and girls
A relatively recent study by SamKnows shows that BT uses a very aggressive bandwidth throttle on P2P (e.g. bittorrent). And I believe it is fixed and there is no way to change it.
If you're in a hurry to watch it, buy it!
Only someone with a severe case of greed, and a total lack of outdoor skills, can actually download and watch 100Gb of movies in 1 month.
most things on bit torrent, emule and the likes can be found else where, rapidshare and so on. premium accounts are proper cheap so splash out or look further than where the crowds go.
