NzKaizer: Not sure what you guys complaining about, but I'm getting 500+kbps torrents.
Then again, I'm not on that torrent plan, I pay per gb, so I have every right to torrent

I never run torrents in peak times mainly cause the speeds used to suck and they aren't time sensitive so I just set them to come on after 2am usually.
I wanted to see how they would run, so tried on a well seeded torrent that I had used earlier. It couldn't even get started tonight..
I didn't realise things were that bad during peak hours... Pretty crazy.
It is all those bloody people wasting bandwidth on youtube I bet.. I wish they would leave Orcon and go to some other ISP.
