I decided to finally write something which may help some people on the torrent plan realise why there speeds are so bad after midnight
I rang Xnet yesterday to complain as just recently (starting from weekend gone) my speed from midnight till 8am went from 350 kps to 30-100kps MAX i explained to him at the speed im on there is no way i can get anywhere near 75gigs a month free quota.
He said " Just recently we put all torrent users in there own pool so they have a certain amount of bandwidth between them. When they all download at the same time (mainly midnight till 8am) they are only gettin a little amount of the bandwidth allocated for torrent plan users"
Which is why during the day we can download at good speeds but during free hours it is going at a snail trail pace.
when asked why .."because other users who are on differnt plans have complained about getting less speed between 12am -8am"
i asked how long was this going to go on for "he didn't know"
My question is will you guys on a torrent plan be able to download your 75 gig quota this month at the speeds you are currently getting?
i dont think i will
And is it a breech of the fair trading act when they say we can download 75gigs per month for FREE when there is no way i can download that much at the speed im currently getting?
