HiSmile, I was wondering if there was something wrong with my phone line or something? The problem is that I only seem to ever get 400MB a night of turrents downloads total. It is ok during the middle of the day but off-peak it is very bad. I am on the torrent plan and im using p2p of-peak. I know someone on the torrent plan who went over the 75GB of-peak cap last month in p2p downloads. And I can download on p2p fine on-peak its just ofpeak. I wouldnt mind if it whent slow of peak for p2p every now and again but at the moment it allways does. Last month I used hardly any of my "up to 75GB free" and at these speeds I have no chance of ever reaching it which means that its not up to 75GB for me its alot lower. I would like to know if it the problem is on my side or the isps? oh and thanks for helping me in advanced people Wink

Dude i know someone who gets like over 60GB a month of traffic at night on the torrent plan useing p2p. I have seen the other threads and i dont really care about bad international speeds and all that nonsence. And on-peak speeds can be stupidly fast lol Smile. All I want to find out is why i can not reach anywhere near the up-to 75GB free off-peak data that i am paying for when others can. And  I want to know why my downloads are going so slow at night so i can fix it. Dude all i wanted was for someone to help me with my internet connection so can you not treat me like i am ranting because i am not. And im happy with all of my xnet services apart from my of-peak speeds. Theyve had very nice on-peak speeds. And i can often max out my connection on-peak so im very happy with them for that. If you do not have anything constructive to say to me then you can go away and ty.

You say that your p2p speeds are good during the day and rubbish of peak. That's what it's like
for 99% of people on the torrent plan. There's not much you can do to improve your speeds
because xnet appear to have pooled all those on the torrent plan and allocated a certain amount
of bandwidth to that pool. Sucks really. I'm on torrent plan and it took me 10 nights to download
a well seeded 4.5gb linux distro. I'm still downloading a 6.5gb file that i started on October 4th.
Perhaps you could ask the guy who downloads 60gb per month what his secret is and let us all know.

Cheers ;-)

I've deleted the posts. We ask for people to resize images to a more friendly size - 640 pixels wide or 1024 max. I saw the images and they would work well at 640 pixels, so no reason not to resize.

I've just changed off the torrent plan back to pay per meg.
My speeds are fine now 24/7,
I'll just have to be more selective about what I d/l now as I'm paying for everything..

I was having the same problem from midnight to 8am and was having to d/l torrents after 8am in the morning to get anything at all when it was going at 400 k/bs after 8am..
