diadara Posted August 2, 2009 Report Share Posted August 2, 2009 Since the last update, uTorrent has been nothing but trouble for me and my family. I've spent countless hours with my ISP support and sent them at least 20 emails about our connection speed. It seemed to change from 4 Mbit/s to our normal 12 Mbit/s rapidly, sometimes it was a matter of minutes, sometimes hours. Finally I located the problem. uTorrent lowered the speed in our entire household! And this without anyone of us downloading anything, only seeding. Strange thing was, our upload speed was fine during this time of trouble.I tested it over and over again, and it gave the same result. No one downloading nor seeding, but had uTorrent running = down to 4 Mbit. Closed uTorrent = our speed went up to 12 Mbit. How can a program just by being started, lower the broadband speed by 60%?Luckily I managed to stop the ISP technicians from coming here to investigate, or I would have been forced to pay for their visit. Now that would have been embarrasing.Sorry if this has been brought up before, I was just so upset I had to post asap. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
