If you are using bit torr3nt, try switching to BitCom3t becuase it has packet header encryption and Rogerz can't throttl3 if it doens't know what you are transferring.

BTW, there is a group boycott that supposed to happen on the 15th.
tried encrypting the header and it didnt work...

changed the listen port to 1720 and its partially ok...download capped at 90KB/sec

Packet encryption doesnt work, without uploader having it.
For it to work, sender must encrypt it, not downloader. So for it to successfuly work, both clients gotta have it.

been having this problem for a while too, upload speed is fine for ftp and such but torrents are hella slow and have f*kd my ratio up, tried going with alternate posts to try and help but to no avil, i will try swiching to 1720 and see whats what, and report back, called cogeco a feew weeks back and told them im using torrent to transfer pictures and other material that i own copyright to, to friends and family who aren't near me and asked if they throttled any ports, the guy i talked to said no but asked his super and he said that cogeco does not have a policy of throttleing any ports without a message being sent to you, to let you know. i don't really believe them cause i know better but i ono. as i said i will see whats what with cogeco, i have the pro service 10mbps down 1mbps up, about a year ago i had this and would get 120KB/s upload on torrents and thats what i get when doing ftp transfers so we shall see.

An anonymous reader writes "Slyck news is reporting that because BitComet does not recognize the 'private flag' on torrents originating from pirate BitTorrent trackers, this client is being banned from these communities. Private trackers are finding their torrents spread via the private DHT layer, allowing leechers to bypass ratios and download content freely."

For BitTorrent Sympatico without throttling might be faster, but its a matter of time when Sympatico intorduces packet throttling on their service anyway. I also do not use bittorrent on my computer anymore.
What I do is I download torrent on my 100mbit line dedicated server, and then download from in to my PC at 700kb/sec constantly.


Sympatico High Speed is $44.95, its a 3mbit download, 800kbit upload service.
Sympatico High Speed Ultra is $50.00, it is 5mbit/800kbit

My Rogers Extreme is 44.95, its 5mbit/800kbit
Rogers Extreme for new customers is 46.95, its 6mbit/800kbit

existing customers can upgrade to the 6mb line as well. and the cap goes up from 60GB a month to a 100GB a month.

since u say ur downloading at over 700KB/s it means urs has been upgraded already. the 5MB is usually around 6xxKB/s
the 5MB wasn't upgraded until i called them a few weeks ago. if ur not sure what urs is. u can go to their website https://www.shoprogers.com/web_auth/signin.asp login in check internet usage. if the cap says 60GB ur still on 5MB and if it's 100GB u have been upgraded to 6MB

I know you can be upgraded, it is $2 extra a month. In another thread I posted all about it. I posted there that I got 2 accounts, one is new Extreme 6/100 and another one is old one 5/60.
