hachi:sbiddle:DjShadow: Thing is, if everyone goes to Slingshot to get free overnight Data, won't they have the same problem? (then xnet gets faster with everyone jumping over)
When all the torrent users are disconnected when section 92a is introduced then every ISP will get faster!
You do raise a very valid issue, from following threads on here over the past few years it certainly seems to be the case as people switch between ISP's. You have to remember that it can take as few as 50 - 100 hardcore torrent users to flood an entire ISP, that's not a lot of people to jump ship and move the problem elsewhere.
You're happy about section 92a? That's unusual.
Where did I say I was happy with it?
I disagree with it but the reality is there is probably very little chance of section 92a being modified. At present only WxC take any notice of the take down notices and it seems that virtually all other ISP's apparently just ignoring them.
If what I've heard is corrent there are actually a significant number of these received by all NZ ISP's on a weekly basis. If that is the case then there are going to be torrent users who very quickly find themselves with with no internet access come Feb 28th 2009 if they are connecting to trackers or peers that are being monitored. ISP's will have no real choice but to act on these and it won't be a 2 (or is it 3?) strikes you're out situation like WxC at present.
