At the end of the day I think there is more to it than the torrent user issue. From what I have experienced so far, despite some speedtest.net tests to coastal USA, and Austaralian cities exceeding 1 Mbps, international connections are nonetheless vastly inferior at night, and well before the midnight free torrent download period cuts in. For me it's been quite poor for streaming video all evening / night and didn't change for the worse at midnight.
I note also that slower international connections are not exclusive to Xnet, judging by other forum threads. I would be happy as long as things like youtube etc would stream smoothly. At present although my download manager managed up to 170 kilobytes/sec with one download, I was still getting rebuffering on all streaming flash video content (while no other network activity is taking place).
I also wonder if our international bandwidth is really sufficient for anyone on any ISPs domestic ADSL service to get fast speeds at night.
I'd certainly have to see solid evidence of better performance from another ISP before I would switch. Anyone have any knowledge / thoughts on peak time international speeds on other IPS (prefereably with a Naked DSL product).
I'll watch the situation for a while before deciding whether to change ISPs. My VFX works well since they changed me to an uncompressed codec, and speeds blaze in the mornings.
