 Um I recently moved to Vodafone on 12 month contract. Doesn't quite resolve my original question.
Always read the fine print. It's unlikely an ISP will change their clearly stated data shaping policy for one customer. Either accept it as per your sign up terms or move to another provider.

We are not anti-P2P; however if our network is congested, rather than impact all customers, P2P-type traffic will be the first to be de-prioritised (slowed). We will always prioritise the more mainstream traffic types (such as video, web and gaming traffic) over P2P as this will have the greatest benefit for the majority of customers.

I did read the fine print I just didn't know it was gonna be this bad. Although others with Vodafone are not experiencing the same throttling issues so maybe it is just me and my setup.

Funny thing is I was with Vodafone 13 months ago on ADSL and torrents was working alot faster, however I was using normal Sky.

I think I will have to contact the Vodafone technical team and find out how/why/what is going on.

Thanks everyone for your feedback

The issue is your setup not Vodafone, The tech team can't support your torrent setup

Unfortunately, the shaping is As their network is designed.

Vodafone will not help you at all if you call up and start talking torrenting.

Interesting (finding) as I never knew about that *lol*

Though. Battle.net and more and more other games are using P2P for updating their large files, would those P2P traffic get shaped?



P2P is simply where many services are going.

Unfortunately, that lands with deprioritization. Depending on ISPs management, you might find services that support a "legacy" mode, are actually faster. 


I must say, none of my games' P2P updates had suffered any degradation with speed during peak hours :-/ Maybe not all P2P or they do monitor what type of P2P networks?




Internet is my backyard...

Try the utorrent settings in my post, I'm not having issues and I'm only on 30/10 fibre. You need to tweak Utorrent as you have much better upload speed than on ADSL. I had the same slow speeds until tweaking.

Have not made any changes to the HG 659..

Follow the port opening too. I found it made a difference.
I just put all the client connections on -1 :)

connecting to -1 (unlimited) connections for a torrent can be pretty harmful on your modem.

Do remember tcp ack traffic, given over fibre you have plenty of upstream to cover that with but there is a point where adding more peers giving that little bit more speed is nullvoid and creating another issue for you.


Port forwarding, of-course is a must. Without it your cutting down your connectible peers to those who are forwarded themselves (assuming no pinhole connections)
