SPants Posted January 6, 2008 Report Share Posted January 6, 2008 Recently seeing just a trickle where I used to see a torrent in popular TV show downloads, I tried an Open Office download. It came through pretty much screaming, at least by my standards, between 50 and 100 kB/s. But my TV torrents are at around a tenth of that now - and that didn't used to be the case, just a few weeks ago, though of course I can't repeat the same downloads to verify. I'm not sure I am reading the 'swarm' stats right, but right now, for example, seeds/peers for "The Shield Season 6" show as follow: 10(51) 12(294) ...but with my d/l speed showing at only around 3kB/s. It looks/seems intuitively like these are popular downloads and so should be coming through much more quickly.I'm using a Sprint air-card, and haven't found any posts bearing on the question of throttling by Sprint. Likely? Is there a definitive test for this? A workaround? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
