marshalleq: That's awesome.  I wonder how on earth bitorrent can distinguish between your NAT and someone elses (I've never researched it).  I reckon theres something random going on for specific accounts.  Maybe I was added to something that I need to be unadded from (that's techno speak) ;)

We haven't made any changes that could impact this AFAIK - but I'll talk to the network guys tomorrow.

CGNAT should only impact your upload on bittorrent, your download should be fine.

(unless of course, you are on some private tracker where maybe if you don't upload enough, your download is throttled or something like that)

I've been torrenting lots of (legal) content from behind CGNAT and public IP (testing the network heheh).  No real difference from a download POV.

Sounds like you are already in touch with our team, which is good. If you PM me your email address I'll follow up with the team.  We'll try and get to the bottom of it.
(but even though you think you haven't changed anything, don't rule out random crap happening which disrupts your stuff)

BigPipeNZ: no, we haven't started shaping torrent traffic, and have no plans to do so.

As stated above, we do not even have the means to shape the traffic even if we wanted to. And we don't want to.

suggest you check out a few other things first
If using wifi, is that congested? Try using over ethernet.
Make sure you are trying the most popular linux isos to ensure they are well seeded.

Drop our team a note through our site and we can help out. Just make sure to let us know what you have already checked so we don't waste your time suggesting the obvious stuff.

Nice post!

Mine is fine on my crummy VDSL still. Behind CG NAT so that someone else gets all the nastygrams from whoever for what I am downloading.
