freitasm: So.. It looks like in addition to your legal Linux ISO images via torrent protocol, ISPs are also slowing down your Linux remote access work?

Not to mention those people that use an SSH tunnel to connect to remote desktop sessions for Windows servers.

hellonearthisman: Does the SSH limiting happen all the time or only in the free data periods?

I know they limit torrent speeds then but, for example, today after 10am I was getting my line speed on well seeded torrents and it was not coming from the slingshot torrent cache.

All the time.  My original problem was that *everything* was limited; they fixed that, but SSH is still slow at 10am on a Friday morning.  Move it to another port and it's fast(er).

I use SSH at work but to get in from outside I need to bring the VPN up first so they won't affect that.  We're mostly a Windows shop anyway.

As per DeadlyLlama's comment. Have you tried a different port, other than 22?
