Talkiet:zpempire: Beware, I just switched from Vodafone to Telecom 500GB plan. The speed to download on Torrent is just average 5KBps despite my download speed is 9MB when doing speedtest.
The download speed is average at 1MBps for the last two years with Vodafone.
I contacted Telecom support team and I was told that I am on the same server as before. but I was not given any advice because Telecom does not provide any support for "torrent".
I asked Telecom do you guys actually sharp torrent traffic, the answer is NO. However, the speed for doing other things such as watching on Youtube, iTunes is very good.
So thinking carefully before switching to Telecom if you do download a lot on P2P.......
HI zpempire. There is no shaping on the 500GB plan. I am on a 160GB plan and all types of traffic (including torrenting) go at the expected speeds for me. Please don't 'warn' people based on your single experience which is not going to be anything to do with traffic shaping.
I see you have posted this in another thread too and there are a couple of hints there already - I'm sure this is an easily resolved problem.

No offense, I like Telecom, otherwise I would not switch to Telecom. In fact I have been with Telecom mobile XT network for over two years, the speed is much faster than Vodafone 3G. But in terms of landline broadband, I am really not impressed.
1. the speedtest result was about 11MBps when I was with Vodafone, now it is only 9MBps. I have full record of history to support of that.
2. The interest fact that I also found out that I connected my PC with Telecom XT mobile broadband using iPhone personal hotspot, the download speed for the same torrent file is suddenly increased to in average 250kbps. None is changed on my PC except chosen a different network. But once switch back to landline broadband, the speed is just 3/5/7 Kbps most of the time.
After all, what I said is my personal opinion and it is completely based on my experience. Nothing more.
