Re: Sandvine

I read something similar about the Sandvine program Concast is using and it said that not even encryption will help. But it seems to work. Also use a port between 50,000 and 60,000 on your router and BT client. Concast throttles the default ports and I guess has less control over higher port numbers. Are you firewalled? That could be one source of not being able to upload properly all the time.

There is always Verizon FIOS, which will let you upload at 1 or 2 Mbps. Or a high speed DSL line. But maybe all ISPs will adopt Sandvine. I don't think Concast is worried about the content that you are downloading, but the bandwidth. Concast's pipes aren't as fat as Verizon's, that is why they are so concerned with bandwidth usage. They should offer tiered pricing with bandwidth restrictions (DL and UL caps), not punish bittorrent users because they use more bandwidth than someone who just checks email and surfs. There is a lot of legal bittorrent traffic.
