Are the peers you are downloading based in NZ? This may explain the high speeds




Tyler - Parnell Geek - iPhone 3G - Lenovo X301 - Kaseya - Great Western Steak House, these are some of my favourite things.

I think what he may have done was simply change the ports, thereby, tricking the system into thinking its web traffic, and not torrent traffic. Mind PM'ing me how?

Changing ports will not work. Telecom are a little more clever than that ;)

nzkeyboard: It seems there are ways of getting past the traffic shaping to enable the consumer "all you can eat" P2P data.


You already have "all you can eat" P2P data within the constraints of a managed plan... You don't have "full speed all you can eat" P2P data, but that's also within the constraints of a managed plan.

Telecom is making upload free for this month. I think it's an experiment to see if more of this kind of traffic can be moved from international to domestic. That may explain the increased speed some people see sometimes...

For all the non beleivers and of course the folks that genuinely want the know how:

I have made an educational video which i will upload to youtube showing everyone the correct settings needed to be able to download torrents at full speed, any time whilst on the Telecoms Big Time Broadband Plan.


Cheers

And congratulations, now that you have published this, Telecom will apply a 'fix' to prevent it from working for anyone.

(BTW I have not seend your video, so I have no idea what you are doing)

*shrug* I am not worried about that. I just felt obliged to let everyone know.

Must be a white list rule for traffic on port 8080 in their rules. Otherwise you would expect them to be using DPI to throttle torrenting regardless of ports.

It won't last now.

if the traffic is encrypted + going through port 8080 then good luck ISP being able to tell the difference between web browsing and normal web usage...

Maybe instead of fixing this straight away, Telecom could wait and see if it actually ends up affecting network performance for others. But that's not going to happen.

And why did the OP removed the first post?

And why the YouTube video removed?

Some people don't think before their actions bite them back. Telecom people do participate and read here, and the video was up long enough for things to be seen.

I am always amused by people who post things in a public forum without thinking... Pictures on facebook, videos on YouTube, comments on Geekzone...
