ryanc1256: Oh yer, I'm a big fan of bf3 ATM so yer. Steam/torrent cache???


Snap has this too, but torrent cache?

Snap's cache is zero-rated too (last time I checked)


Slingshot use Bluecoat or Oversi or PeerApp appliances (I forget which) to cache everything possible, including torrents and streaming video and serve it locally.

The Game.

Ah right, I wonder how well that would actually work - I suppose it's based on a most-requested basis.

On my home Snap connection Youtube loads quick at all times, downloading I can achieve line speed most of the time and also Torrent's are almost constant line speed, ofc this depends of where you download it but you get the idea. I believe Snap also have a YouTube cache.

Bluecoat for Youtube I think

It works very well If something I want to watch does not stream/download well. I refresh the page or restart the download. The source changes to callplus and I can download it/stream at line speed.

Don't forget, you don't want to be the account holder, in case you get buggered by RIANZ if any of your flat mates get caught downloading anything illegal!
