GC - Costa Rica vs Canada - Video (bittorrent)


Recommended Posts

I've heard that some ISPs are throttling or shaping their traffic such that bittorrent downloads are extremely sloooow.

Right now I'm getting whooping 20 KB/s! (Only 9 hrs to go!)

Time to change providers?

Thanks for the link though! That's great that folks are making this stuff available.

Via bittorrent is the only way to get it from me but someone else might have the time and bandwidth to upload it to a dump site like rogepost.com or mediafire.com.

What's stopping you from downloading via torrent?

Rogers does throttle bittorrent upload speed but downloads should be unaffected. There is a relatively small swarm (9 at the moment) and most will be from people on home connections who limit their upload rate so I would not expect great speeds. That said, you might want to increase the number of connections your torrent client allows so you are connected to as many as possible.

I switched to 3web from Rogers to get away from their throttling, it's almost the same service (6 mbps down, 800 kbps up cable) for about 2/3 the price.
