I just saw this piece on Betanews, would this benefit ISPs like xnet where bittorent slows them to a grind?

No, it will make it even worst because what they want to do is to get around filtering and shaping - and the "unintended consequence" is probably going to be a raise of connections and escalating bandwidth problems...

At face value, it should help. However, it seems that it'll also make shaping P2P easy as pie.

Interesting stuff. I don't really have an opinion on it yet as it has the potential to be both positive and negative, but it's interesting to see how BitTorrent as a protocol has grown and developed nonetheless.

  Bittorrent moving to UTP means people who love their quality VOIP and games will suffer if this move continues and people ramp up UTP usage.

 UTP is good in the fact that it allows quite fast communication between PCs. For applications that rely on response times, this makes great sense - lower latency for VOIP and games is what those applications rely on.

 For a file transfer protocol to basically abuse UTP out of self-interest to try to avoid filtering and bandwidth provisioning is quite bad.

 Bittorrent + UTP = UTP filtering will eventuate = VOIP and game QoS will deteriorate.

 People should see this as a very bad thing.

Ono should be built into the next version of utorrent. I use azureus so i dont know if it is built in to utorrent but if its not, i believe it should be.

Ono uses your isp's akamai service to find peers on the same isp so you have faster downloads, and less burden on your isp's upstream bandwidth. It checks what akamai server you and other ono peers being directed to, and if you are connecting to the same akamai server, then you must be on the same isp so it connects you to a closer peer.

That sounds like another way for big brother to know what we're torrenting.

Dont know if your refering to ono or not?

If you are, its not being monitored by big brother because ono and akamai have no interop agreement.
Ono just runs a query for something that akamai caches such as a common jpg image. When usera and userb query this image / url they take note of where they are getting the image pulled from and then ono uses this information to link up to people who are getting it from the same place.
You will always be directed to your own isp's akamai cache if they have one otherwise it wont work for you.

I dont know why akamai has not already approached the ono people and asked if they could help promote ono, and advertise it as a feature of the akamai edge service.

They may not want to be associated with a service which promotes file sharing.
