I am on Orcon at the moment, I am paying a healthy price for 110GB per month, and lately it is damn slow for anything P2P.

I noticed that other people complained that Rapidshare is unusable, however someone else mentioned that rapidshare on Big Time is capped at 200kb/s (no big deal for me, 200kb/s is infinitely better than not usable at all)

So my question is, for those of you on Big Time, can you achieve 100KB/s (or more) during peak hours with BT?

I have tested a Vodafone connection, and it can achieve 900+ kb/s during peak hours, Orcon is around 30kb/s

Thanks

Its really up and down. Some days you might get up to 200kb download on BT then other days during peak hours it might be 20 kb/s

Really depends on the day and what torrents. If REALLY well seeded, I have seen over 1MB/s during peak time. But for most torrents I normally achieve 60-100KB/s during peak times.
