attilathegorilla: Guys just ignore Talkiet, he`s so one-eyed it`s not funny. He says the Torrent plan brought the system to its knees. He keeps forgetting the fact that the Torrent plan was created because the system was already brought to its knees. Extremely poor international speeds during peak times. The only reason was Xnet`s pathetic contention ratios compared to decent ISP`s. The torrent plan was introduced, and things got much better. But now thanks to a couple of night-owls like Talkiet, all the customers of the Torrent plan have been screwed over with this pooling rubbish. I suggest everyone going back to the regular plan and do our heavy downloading at peak times, just for the way we were treated.
BS. I was (and still am) with Xnet and I didn't notice any bad slowdowns until after the torrent plan was put in place. I have now noticed a return to the previous levels now that they have done some thing to manage the torrent users.
I would respectfulyl submit that it's the users that feel they are entitled to abuse a service, then whinge when they can't get FAR FAR more than they deserve that should shut up and be ignored.
Anyway - I'm thrilled the service has been somewhat restored - I guess putting up the the whinging of a few torrent users that don't like it is a small price to pay :-)
Cheers - N
