kiwiants: i dont know but it may open up some bandwidth headroom
Hmm. Downloading torrents will use bandwidth, thus reducing the remaining available bandwidth. If anything, I would expect it to decrease performance of other connections. The only way I can see this working is if Woosh are otherwise treating Youtube only as web traffic, and not allocating the connection to a high enough throughput carrier. That would be a bit of a failing in their service, imo, if it can't do basic streaming.
