does xnet throttle torrents?

Not as far as I know. Could be wrong though. I don't usually download torrents that have a massive amount of peers however.

Currently have a torrent going between 40-50KB/s. There isn't a huge swarm however.

I have gotten up close to 200KB/s on some torrents before on xnet.

hell yes.Its just hard to tell as their normal feed sucks so bad.

Have a torrent coming in at the moment, 1300 seeds, 1247 peers, shes coming in at 20kb/s.:groan:

Take my laptop elsewhere, get 5 times the speed.

They throttle everything else, so why shouldn't they throttle torrents too?

They even throttle their clients!

Don't even think about it - get rid asap. You don't need the hassle.

Have you made sure the ports are forwarded and tested if they are?

You could try the test at http://broadband.mpi-sws.org/transparency/

It might help.

it seems there's "no indication that your ISP rate limits" either upload nor download.
