michaelmurfy: @Coon best read up and on the several other threads on here. There are better providers...

Edit: to add. Your torrents are not being rate limited.

 

 

yeah I know I'm gambling, for about $4 worth of savings/month over 12 months. (compared to orcon/slingshot prices $63.75/month) or around $66 with stuff fibre

 

 

If it goes bad, I promise I will complain in this forum lol

 

 

fwiw I don't game, only torrent and youtube

Coon: I'm considering joing after my current contract is up. I only use the 100/20 plan and torrent a little but seems to me Vodafone is capping my torrent speed to 300kb/s

I would say its going to be your internal network thats "capping" the torrents.

Like @Lias has said on vodafone torrents are not being capped..

@coon It could also be the ultrahub being weird if you're using that and speeds are good otherwise, that is very slow though.

Try downloading this torrent and see what speed you get. I am able to max out my 50Mbit VDSL connection easy (that is around 5.5 - 6MB/s download speed).

getting 250-400 kb/s, it fluctuates all the time . Over wifi, still, an order of magnitude lower than it should be

 

 

I wonder if it's the router but I don't have a spare to test

Test over Ethernet for the purposes of resolving this issue at least.

Are you using the Vodafone supplied Ultra Hub?

 

 

 

You could pickup a HG659 off TradeMe cheap as just for testing.

nah im using r7000 with tomato firmware. Ethernet not working for some reason, can't even 192.168.1.1 when plugged in.

 

 

Not sure if it's Windows or the router throwing a fit because I assign each device an internal IP for wifi
