JWR:freitasm:PhantomNVD: global zone (save on VPN/DNS for netflix et al) seems to be the only significant difference unless you want to read up on fineprint of bandwidth management of torrents and such?
as an aside, how come ALL the ISP's support the 'user licence avoidance' of netflix but stomp on torrents??
Create your own topic but a teaser: very different things. One is the illegal distribution of content the users don't own the rights to. The other is just bypassing geoblocks, which is not illegal.
Bittorrent isn't illegal!
The common use of it is illegal. Torrenting World of Warcraft patches and Linux ISOs is not.
