I have migrated from Spark 100 UFB plan to BigPipe a few months ago and I would not recommend anyone who's using P2P a lot (like torrents or P2P video) migrating to BigPipe. 


While being with Spark I used to have a steady 10 MB/s on pretty much any popular torrents downloads, I'm hardy getting 6 on BigPipe now. 


And it's not stable. Once it reaches 6MB, it jumps down to about 4 and then slowly grows back to 6.  


I used to have no problem with watching P2P tv via Spark. Now, it's constantly freezing. 


The support is only checking if you have a full speed on a to a nearest site and as it shows a speed about 100 Mbps they consider no issue found.

being behind CGNAT will limit your ability to effectively use P2P services.




The network itself for both spark and bigpipe are near identical.

@spoonboy Request a static IP address this will cost you and as above this is not a network fault

Tested with  3 Ubuntu images download in parallel and got the same picture. 


Settings: max number connections per torrent - 100. Global max number - 300. 


When downloading an individual torrent the speed is about 7 MB/s.


Submitting all the three downloads simultaneously gives a total download speed of 9.8-10 MB/s


So, the issue is with the BigPipe Internet channel. 


It would be interesting to compare speedtest results on some overseas hosts in BigPipe and Spark. 



Sorry to be this guy, but 10MB/s x8 = 80Mb/s + overheads = your line speed.
And the issue is? Trash torrents on your end?
I get the same on a 100Mb Vodafone connection using IPTorrents to download Linux Distros....


Doing some tests currently on my connection and I max out at 9.5 meg.
