Hey guys,

I know this is not possible but my downloads off torrents are showing insane speeds (See Below)



It is currently shooting up to 5.60MB/s and I know that this isn't possible on my current line and on Xnet - what could be the reason for this mis-representation of speed?

Just a stab in the dark. Your torrent client could be caching the download on pc and measuring the throughput speed
from the cache, rather than from the ethernet interface..

maybe you are in a flat, sharing your connection with other people and two of you just happen to be torrenting the same file at once? :p

No, unfortunately not - I restarted the program and it started reporting the real speed:(
