Sudden Slow Speeds -- University Campus


Recommended Posts


I've just recently encountered a problem with downloading torrents on my University's campus. For the past 2 months that I have been here, there have been no problems when it came to downloading torrents. However, several days ago, I noticed that not a single torrent, regardless of the number of seeders available, would download faster than 3kbs. Obviously that is ridiculously slow.

My question lies in that I believe my campus perhaps has put a cap on torrent download speeds somehow, but I'm not sure if that's entirely the problem. Does anyone have any ideas on how I could go about resolving this issue?

Most universities have strict rules on using psp on their networks....

It could be yours probably allowed it to a point but may now be throttling big time!

They may have noticed a spike in bandwith usage and started implementing stricter guidelines on their network.

Ask your Dorm supervisor or the Technology office on Campus.
