Torrent upload throttling question.



Aright... so Im sick and tired of this shit. Is there a way around the throttling of uploading?? or so called sharing.

Im using one Russian site and you have to hold upload/download ratio, and i cannot do it just cuz Rogers sucks balls and doesnt let me share. I think i read the news that they even won some case and now its legal for them.

Anyway... How can I increase my speed, or where to switch cuz my 3rd account is up, and i cannot download my Russian movies anymore... HELP.

I absolutely doing it in screening purposes only i swear.

Man up and pay ~$15/mo. for a newsgroup accounts and forget Torrents ever existed.

Problem solved and you'll be able to saturate your internet's bandwidth of you so choose.

as a taste...

go here: http://www.newzleech.com/

and type in what you're looking for. That'll show you what you can get. Keep in mind there are a ton of search engines for using newsgroups to help you find what you want.

Newsgroups are a bunch of really big and really fast servers all around the world that allow people to upload files to them and you basically connect to them as well and download whatever you want (that is available there) as insanely fast speeds and without the worry of keeping ratios.

The $15/mo fee is your connection fee to use the servers. How much you pay depends on the providers retention (how long their servers keep the files/messages), server speed/connection, SSL, and how many simultainious connections from your PC to their server.

I use these guys:
http://www.powerusenet.com/

They've never let me down and the price is good IMO. They're basically a Presidents Choice version of GigaNews which is pretty much considered the defacto standard when it comes to Newsgroup access.

Thats the basics of it all.

hmmm... Well I dont know how much Russian content they have, Im so used to torrents.ru cuz It got everything i need, and the speed is awesome, Its just the upload that ****ing my ratio up and it automatically closes the account down.

Hmmm... someone suggested to switch to Acana.ca cuz they have:

No Blocked Ports or Traffic Shapping
Unlimited Downloading
100GB of Online Storage
Up to 5Mbps Download and 800Kbps Upload

But its only 5 or 6 mbs max... I like my 10 right now

I have a friend who is big into this stuff. he has multiple accounts with different torrent sites. he found that if he created a new account JUST before the previous account was closed for a low share ratio, he could continue. If the first account was closed before the new account was created, the IP gets banned. he just keeps creating new accounts.

Vlad the reason why your upload is shit on torrents.ru is because it is a private tracker and has much more seeders than leechers. No internet connection going to solve that. I got 4:1 ratio on it because I seed torrents that I downloaded over half a year ago. You only solutions are, seed torrents 24/7 for as long as you can or add your own content.

TekSavvy has unlimited and unthrottled bandwidth. it's DSL though, so probably a bit slower that Rogers ... I like it though!

yeah: CRTC denies internet throttling appeal
The CRTC has denied an appeal from a group of internet providers to force Bell Canada to stop its internet traffic management, otherwise known as throttling.
